Aloo matar/peas potato vegetable with gravy

Hello everyone! Today I would share with you the way I make aloo mutter. It’s a very common dish but I just modified a bit  and end result was very yummy.


1/4kg  baby potatoes

1 cup boiled peas ( I used frozen peas)

2 tomatoes

1 onion

2 spring onion with leaves

1tbsp ginger garlic paste

¼ tsp   jeera /cumin seeds

1/4tsp  haldi/turmeric powder

2 green chillies chopped finely

1/4tsp  coriander powder

¼ tsp  red chilli powder (skip if u don’t want it too spicy)

¼ tsp garam masala powder

Salt to taste

2tbsp oil


Boil the baby potatoes. Let it cool and peel off the skin. Make sure they are not over boiled. Grate onions and tomatoes and keep them separate. In a pan heat oil, add jeera. Sauté it for a minute, add green chillies and ginger garlic paste. Stir it for a min then add grated onions. Let it cook till onion turns slight pink, add the cut spring onion white part here.   Sauté it for a min again and add tomatoes here. Stir it for few mins  and add all the masalas here. Keep spring onion greens cut and separate. Add slight water here  so all masala  and tomato is cooked. Add potatoes, peas and salt and stir them till all masalas are coated to potatoes. Add more water if necessary. Add spring onion greens and let them cook for few mins.

Aloo matar with spring onions is ready. Serve with plain rice or chapatti or naan. Hope you like this and do let me know your views

  2. Hi Meena, Thanks for the yummy recipe you always find different ways to make a simple dish taste different.

  3. I love this baby potatoes gravy, only peeling the skin makes me go lazy. But I love this with pulao. Thanks Meena for your sweet comment. So you noticed my absence ;-) I was out of station.

  8. delicious and simple aloo matar curry...I almost make like this but minus the onions:)looks tempting and soflavouful..

  9. You should try putting a little cream in it..though I don't know, if it would go with onions; but tomato sabzi becomes more yummy with cream in it.

  10. Mouthwatering recipe, should give a try.

  11. Aloo matter, I should have said nice dish. But I had this dish so many times this winter that I had lost interest in it.
    The new twist of using spring onions is something to look after. Never tried this way, will try once.
