Aloo matar masala recipe

Aloo matar masala in pressure cooker,  a popular combo of potatoes and green peas cooked in onion tomato based gravy, pairs well with chapati, poori and also for biryanis. Last week when we went to a nearby Indian Restaurant for dinner, we decided not to order for any paneer dish and finally ended up in ordering Aloo mutter gravy. While we were enjoying the aloo matar masala, my husband asked me, whether i have this recipe of aloo matar in Jeyashri’s kitchen. I immediately tried the recipe the following week and sharing the recipe with you all now. This recipe i learnt my cousin Kirthika, from whom i learnt the recipe of Pav bhaji ,needless to say, she is an expert in cooking. I still can’t forget the taste of the aloo mutter which she cooked for me when was pregnant with my second baby.

Check out my other popular recipes, which pairs with chapati.
