Aloo Mattar

Serve rotis,naans or kulchas with this aloo mattar anytime, i can sit and eat without saying 'NO', anything with potatoes and green peas are always my favourite..I prepared this yummy aloo mattar gravy few days back which i served with my Paneer Barley Paratha, both together turned out super delicious..This aloo mattar goes fabulous as side dish even along with ghee rice or mildly spiced vegetable pulao when served hot....This aloo mattar goes for a simply preparation quite like paneer matar and this gravy goes for onion tomato based masala..I used baby potatoes and fresh green peas for making this wonderful looking gravy..

Aloo Mattar


1/2kg Baby potatoes (cooked & peeled)
1cup Green peas
1no Onion (chopped)
2cups Tomato puree (store bought)
1/2tsp Sugar
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tsp Cumin seeds
2nos Bayleaves
1tsp Red chilly powder
1tbsp Coriander powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/4cup Cream
Oil
Salt
Chopped coriander leaves

Heat enough oil, fry the cumin seeds,bayleaves then add the chopped onions,garlic ginger paste and sauté until the raw smell goes away, add the green peas,cook for few seconds, add now the tomato puree, garam masala,coriander powder, red chilly powder,sugar and salt..cook everything in low flame for few minutes..meanwhile in a pan,heat few drops of oil, fry the cooked baby potatoes for few minutes until they turns crispy..

Add now the cream, fried potatoes cook in low flame until the oil gets separates from the gravy, add the chopped coriander leaves and serve with chapathis,rotis or naan...
