Alu Matar (Potato with Green Peas)

One of the easiest dishes to make to have with chapati. Finishes by the time the chapatis are done. It goes well with rice as well. Its very similar to my Alu Palak. Infact, its the same. Instead of Palak (Spinach), I put in Peas.

3 medium size potatoes - peeled, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 medium onion chopped
1 tsp chilli powder (adjust)
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
a handful frozen peas(you can add more)
salt to taste

  1. Heat some oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds.
  2. Once they start spluttering, add the onion and fry it till brown
  3. Now add all the dry spices and salt and fry for 2 mins (take care the spices don't burn).
  4. Add some water and put the potatoes and the peas.
  5. Cook till the potatoes are done. Adjust water as needed.
  6. Get the desired consistency and take off the stove.
  7. Serve with roti or rice.
