About PRESSURE COOKER ALOO MATAR Recipe

With fresh green peas hitting the market during winters, there is nothing better than a large bowl of hot, spicy aloo-matar/potato and peas curry to enjoy with any Indian flat bread like rotis, parathas etc. or even with some hot jeera rice or pulav. Made in a pressure cooker, having it on the table is just a few minutes away!

  2. Now, start layering the rest of the ingredients. First layer the onions.then tomatoes and spice powders (red chilli, garam masala and haldi).
