Aloo Gobi Matar Recipe | Easy Side Dishes for Roti

Print Friendly and PDF
Roti with some vegetable sabzi and dal is a routine for my weekday dinners.I do not plan much for weekday cooking and usually decide based on the availability of vegetables in my refrigerator at that time.Sometimes we would be left with less quantity of various vegetables and the resultant curry would be usually a combination of such vegetables.Few vegetables pair up beautifully and aloo is one such versatile vegetable which pairs nicely with almost everything.Today, I am posting a very simple but classic recipe of Aloo Gobi Matar(Dry) sabzi which is a great combination with rice and rotis.
Aloo Gobi Matar Dry Sabzi Recipe:
(serves 3-4)

Ingredients:
2 large Potatoes,peeled and cut into 1" thin pieces
1 small Cauliflower,cut into thin florets
1/2 cup fresh/frozen Green peas
1 big Onion,roughly chopped
2 Tomatoes,finely chopped
2 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
2 tsp fresh Coriander leaves ,chopped
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp roasted Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Amchur powder or juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 tsp Kitchen king masala(optional)
1/4 tsp Kasuri methi,slightly crushed
a pinch of Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
2-3 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Method:
  • Blanch the cauliflower florets and green peas separately in salted hot water for few minutes until they are tender and remove them and keep them aside.Do not over cook them.
  • Heat oil in a thick kadai and crackle cumin seeds and add sliced onions and ginger garlic paste and fry for sometime until the onions turn pink in color.
  • Add the potatoes and fry them for 2-3 mins and add blanched gobi florets and green peas to it and fry them again for another 2-3 mins.
  • Add finely chopped tomatoes to it and mix well.
  • Cover it with lid and reduce the flame and cook for 8-10 mins until they are soft and tender.You should take care that they would not become mushy.You can sprinkle some water on top of the vegetables for faster cooking.
  • Add all the masala powders,turmeric powder and fry for some time.
  • Now add slightly crushed kasuri methi and mix well and cover it and cook for 2-3 mins until all the masalas are incorporated.
  • Add finely chopped coriander and remove it from stove.If you are using lemon juice add it now.
Serve it hot with Roti/Chapthi/Rice/Jeera rice.
Notes:
  1. You can try various combinations like Aloo Gobi,Gobi Matar,Aloo Matar or plain Aloo,plain Gobi sabzi following the same process.Add the vegetable quantities accordingly.
  2. You can skip kasuri methi and kitchen king masala if you do not have.But I prefer to add them as they adds a nice flavor to the curry.
