Aloo Gobi Matar | Potato Cauliflower Peas Curry
Aloo gobi matar is a typical Punjabi dhaba style curry made with potato, cauliflower and green peas, cooked in a onion-tomato gravy and Indian spices. It can be served with a bowl of rice, salad and papad but I like to have it with roti or phulka. This is not a dry curry, so it goes well with naan and kulcha too.
Usually the vegetables are cooked in the onion-tomato gravy. But here I have precooked the potatoes and cauliflower. I have tried both ways and they taste equally good, but I find the latter way easier and time-saving, so I'm sharing that method in the recipe. Enjoy this aloo gobi matar curry with roti or rice.

ALOO GOBI MATAR CURRY RECIPE

{ Potato, cauliflower and green peas cooked in a spicy onion-tomato gravy }
Serves 3-4

Ingredients:
1 large potato
1 ½ cup cauliflower florets
½ cup green peas
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
½ tsp red chilly powder
½ tsp garam masala
2 tsp kasuri methi / dried fenugreek leaves
½ tsp sugar
1-2 tbsp oil

Salt to taste
To grind:
1 tsp oil
1 bay leaf
¼ inch cinnamon piece
1 large onion, roughly chopped
2 large tomato, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
½ inch ginger, chopped
Method:
1. Pressure cook the potato for 3 whistles. Peel the skin and cut into cubes. Soak the cauliflower florets in boiling water until just tender. Drain and set aside.
2. In a kadai, add 1 tsp oil and add bayleaf, cinnamon, onion, garlic, ginger and fry till they become just soft. Once cool, add tomatoes and grind to a smooth paste.
3. In the kadai, add oil and add jeera. When it sizzles, add the ground onion-tomato paste. Cover and cook for 12-15 minutes or till it has become a thick paste.
4. Once oil starts to leave the sides, add turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilly powder, garam masala, kasuri methi and salt.

Notes and Tips
  • Take care that the vegetables are not over cooked or mushy. The vegetables should hold their shape.
  • It is important to cook the onion-tomato mixture until it has become like a thick paste. It will take around 15-20 minutes.
