Aloo matar dry



Ingredients:

Potato - 2, peeled and cubed
Fresh green peas - 1 cup
Oil - 2 tbsp
Jeera/cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1 small, chopped
Garlic - 4 or 5 cloves, chopped
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder - 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tbsp

Preparation:

1. Heat oil in a non stick pan and add cumin seeds. Add onion and garlic and fry till they start turning brown.
3. Add potato cubes and stir well to coat with the oil. Add green peas, turmeric and chilly powder and salt. Combine well and cover and cook. Stir in between. No need to add water, you may use a little if required. When potatoes and green peas are cooked, add garam masala and coriander leaves and fry well. You may drizzle a little oil along the sides of the pan while roasting to get a nice brown colour.

Serve with roti or rice.
