Aaloo Mattar ( Indian-Style Peas and Potatoes)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sana7149

This is a very simple recipe. I still thought about posting this because, the base of this recipe ( point where you add peas and potatoes)can be used to cook almost any vegetable curry - potatoes, spinach, cauliflower, capsicum , mushrooms etc. Another variation of this recipe is to use tomato puree instead of chopped tomatoes

This was my first attempt at homemade Indian, and I was very pleased with the results. I used tomato puree and added a sliced carrot. To save time, I steamed the potatoes, peas and carrots in the microwave while I prepared the rest of the ingredients. I also used just one small green chili pepper. Served with raita (#120649), flatbread, and mango chutney. I can hardly wait to eat the leftovers!
