Gajar matar subzi recipe| Carrot peas subzi

Gajar matar subzi is an easy dry curry made using winter vegetables like Delhi red carrots and fresh green peas. I have never bought these red carrots. First of all,i came to know about these only after coming to Singapore. I have never seen this in Chennai, when i lived there. Generally they make gajar ka halwa with this carrots. As this gajar matar combo is a popular one i thought i will post this recipe using the red carrots which is in season now. You can use normal orange carrots which we get throughout the year. This subzi goes well with rice and roti too. I have posted punjabi aloo beans subzi,i adapted the similar recipe and made slight modifications in that recipe.

Notes:
  1. You can add cut potatoes also along with carrot and peas.
  2. As both carrot and peas are slightly on the sweeter side, the red chili powder was perfect for this gajar matar subzi.
