Main Ingredients

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 cup RK Green Peas

1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped

2 green chilies, slit lengthwise

1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste

1 teaspoon RK Cumin Seeds

1/2 teaspoon RK Turmeric Powder

1 teaspoon RK Coriander Powder

1/2 teaspoon RK Red Chili Powder (adjust to taste)

1/2 teaspoon RK Garam Masala

2 tablespoons oil

3. Add the chopped onions and green chilies. Saute until the onions turn golden brown.

4. Add the ginger-garlic paste and sauté for a minute until the raw smell disappears.

7. Add the cubed potatoes and soaked green peas to the pan. Mix well to coat them with the spice mixture.

11. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.

12. Serve hot Aloo Matar with roti, naan, or rice.
