Aloo matar /aloo mutter is a simple potato peas masala curry.This is my go-to recipe when I am lazy.
Sometimes you are just too tired to cook dinner.It is a versatile curry.
There are no surprises with aloo matar 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.Great if you have guests coming over and you do not know what their children may want to eat.
This curry takes me back to the by-lanes of Kashi ,near the Kashi Vishwanath temple.

This aloo matar gravy recipe is a Jain one.Cooking without onions garlic and even ginger is detoxing.Some people avoid root vegetables and onion,garlic due to religious reasons.They may also have allergies.

You can also make potato peas curry South Indian style,by changing the tadka/tempering to methi dana/fenugreek seeds,rai/mustard seeds,garlic to it.Dry version of aloo matar sabji can be used as a filling for masala dosa.Tastes great with tomato pachdi.
Tip: Add a spoonful of besan/chickpea powder to this curry.This variation is more protein rich and gives it a great base.Chickpea flour gives it a great taste.
