Aloo matar-potato peas curry is my go-to recipe when I am lazy or too tired to cook dinner.You can pair it with any kind of flatbread or roti,fried poori, or any rice dishes.You can just boil some potatoes while you unwind or (steam them earlier in the day).Minimal ingredients and spices, yet it is one of the best comfort foods,even amateur cooks,bachelors can try this recipe and win hearts with their skills.Minimal cooking,maximum taste,great on a budget and healthier than takeaways.Kids love it,so does anyone who needs a light meal.This curry takes me back to the by-lanes of Kashi or Benaras (Varanasi) ,near the Kashi Vishwanath temple.Below is a video of  tari wali aloo matar ki sabji (usually paired with poori or jeera rice), watch,make and enjoy!

This recipe is a Jain recipe( cooked without onions garlic and even ginger).Some people avoid root vegetables and onion,garlic due to religious reasons or due to some allergies.You can enjoy this curry, with rice or roti.It is easy to cook and has a great taste ,even if you have minimal ingredients at home.
