About Geele Matar Aloo Recipe

Literally translated it means wet peas and potatoes, but this vegetarian dish is more than just that

Geele Matar Aloo

Ingredients to make Geele Matar Aloo

  • 4 large potatoes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 chilli powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp oil
  • coriander to garnish
  • garam masala powder

How to make Geele Matar Aloo

  1. 1. Wash and peel the potatoes and chop into large chunks. Soak them in water and keep aside
  2. 2. In a pan, heat the oil and then splutter the cumin seeds in it. Add the ginger garlic paste and the chopped onions and cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  3. 3. Add the tomatoes to this and then add all the masalas - cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric, salt and sugar. Mix well and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, until the pan starts leaving oil from the sides.
  4. 4. To this, add the potoates and the peas. Add water and bring to a boil. Simmer and let it cook till the potatoes are soft.
  5. 5. If there's too much water still, turn up the heat and let some of it evaporate, so you get a gravy that's thick and wraps around the potatoes like a blanket.
  6. Check for seasoning. Take off the heat and sprinkle garam masala powder on it and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve as a part of a multi-course meal.

My Tip:

You can throw in a few cubes of cottage cheese too, to this dish
