Aloo Matar ki Subzi (Potato and Green Pea Curry)

A simple and flavourful potato and green pea curry cooked in a tomato base and Indian spices



 This is a very popular, simple and delicious curry from Uttar Pradesh (India), and is  specially served with poori and bedvis. Usually we discard coriander steams but I have added them in the tomato paste to make it thick and more flavorful.

I adore the fact that you don't seem to use onions and garlic! It makes everything more sattvic. Your recipes look fantastic.
