Sanoli's Kitchen: ALOO MATAR (PEAS POTATO CURRY)

ALOO MATAR (PEAS POTATO CURRY)

This is a classic Punjabi dish, which is nothing but a tasty spicy combination of green peas and potatoes in a tomato puree sauce. From the nutritional value, potato contains vitamins and minerals, where as green peas are high in fibre, protein, vitamins, iron and lutein. My mom oftenly made this yummy curry and served with pooris or parathas.
