ALOO MUTTER


This is a simple but excellent side dish that can be made with just only a few ingredients in the pantry.

INGREDIENTS:

Potatoes – 250 g ( I used baby potatoes)

Green Peas – 1 cup

Onion – 3 medium size

Tomato – 2 medium size

Ginger-garlic paste

Chilly powder – 3 tsp

Coriander powder – 2 tsp

Garam masala – 1 tsp

Clove, cardamom, cinnamon – 1 or 2 each

Oil – 2-3 tsp

Salt to taste

METHOD:

· Pressure cook potatoes for 2 whistles.

· Chop onions and grind to a fine paste. Blanch tomatoes and make a puree.

· Heat pan with oil, add the seasoning items followed by ginger garlic paste. Fry well till it is brown. Then add the green peas and onion paste and mix well.

· Then add the tomato puree. Add chilli powder, garam masala, coriander powder, salt. Add water if necessary.

· Once the raw smell goes off partially, add the cooked potatoes and mix well.

· Let it cook for sometime (say about 10 minutes) till the gravy get thickens and the raw smell goes off completely.

· Now, yummy aloo mutter is ready. Serve hot with rotis/pooris.
