   Ingredients needed

   Potato/Aloo cubed - 2 cups heaped
   Fresh Green peas -1/2 cup
   Onion chopped - 1/2 cup
   Salt as needed

   Spice Powder

   Turmeric powder -1/4 tsp
   Coriander powder -2 tsp
   Chilli powder -3/4-1 tsp
   Garam Masala Powder -3/4 tsp

   For the seasoning

   Oil - 2 tbsp
   Cumin Seeds -1 tsp
   Curry leaves - 2 sprigs


Preparation

Wash, peel the skin and chop potatoes into cubes.

Cook peas with a little salt until tender. You can use frozen peas also.

Method

Heat oil , add cumin seeds, when it splutters, add chopped onions and curry leaves.

Saute onions until transparent. Then add cubed potatoes, turmeric powder and cook covered on medium flame stirring now and then. Sprinkle water in between.

Once the potatoes are half cooked, add salt needed, coriander powder, chilli powder, garam masala powder and cook covered until potatoes become tender.

Add peas and cook for another 5 minutes until everything gets blended well with the spice powder.

Remove from heat, garnish with coriander leaves and serve delicious dry aloo matar curry with hot rice, rotis or parathas. I personally love it with dal and hot rice topped with a tsp of ghee.

Note - If preferred, you can add 1/4 tsp of amchur powder or dry mango powder along with the spice powder.
