Aloo matar-potato peas curry

Aloo matar-potato peas curry is my go-to recipe when I am lazy.Sometimes you are just too tired to cook dinner.It is a versatile curry.You can pair it with any kind of flatbread roti,fried poori. Just boil some potatoes while you unwind.You may also steam them earlier in the day.Minimal ingredients and spices.However, one of the best comfort foods.Most amateur cooks,bachelors can cook it.It is great on a budget and healthier than a takeaway.Kids love it,so does anyone who needs a fast meal.This curry takes me back to the by-lanes of Kashi ,near the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
