Aloo, Gajar, Matar (Potato, Carrot and Peas)


It is a typical North Indian curry, made especially during winter, when fresh fenugreek, carrot and peas are available.

  • 1 cup potato cubed
  • 1 cup shelled peas
  • 1 cup carrot cubed
  • ½ cup fresh fenugreek leaves chopped finely
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 1 tsp garlic grated
  • Pinch of asafetida
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 green chilies chopped fine
  • 3 tbsp of oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp cilantro leaves chopped fine to garnish

Method:
  • Heat 3-4 tbsp of oil in a skillet on medium flame. Add asafetida and cumin seeds. Stir-fry the potato cubes until light pink.
  • Stir in peas, cubed carrot, fenugreek leaves, grated ginger and garlic.
  • Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt.
  • Cook covered on low flame till potato, peas and carrot are tender.
