Green Peas and Potato Curry Recipe

This Green peas and Potato Curry goes well with almost everything. Not to be mistaken for the traditional Aloo Matar, this curd/yoghurt based dish laced with a pinch of spices is aromatic and delicious.

Ingredients :

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 250 gms shelled peas
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 large tomato
  • 3 tbsps oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 glass thick curds/yoghurt
  • 1 inch piece of cinnamon
  • 3 cloves
  • 2 tbsps coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp chilly powder
  • A pinch of haldi/turmeric powder
  • Coriander leaves for garnish

Method :

Chop the potatoes into tiny cubes. Boil the peas and potatoes with salt till done. Slice the onions fine. Powder the coriander seeds, cinnamon and cloves. Chop the tomatoes fine. Churn the curds and keep aside. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard and after it splutters add the onions. Roast till translucent. Drop in the powdered spices and toss for a couple of minutes. Add the chilly and turmeric powders. Toss and immediately add the tomatoes. Roast for a couple of moments till they wilt. Add the cooked peas and potato mixture. Adjust the consistency of the gravy by adding as much water as required. It should be neither too thick nor thin. Boil well for a few minutes on gentle heat so that the flavours infuse and leave behind a thick gravy. Add the curd and give one boil. Garnish with coriander leaves. Mix well and serve hot with rotis, rice or bread.
