Aloo Mutter is a Punjabi dish cooked with potatoes, green peas in tomato sauce. Goes well with parathas, rotis and phulkas.

Ingredients :

1. Potatoes - 4 (peeled and cut into cubes)
2. Onions - 2 (finely chopped)
3. Tomatoes - 3 (finely chopped)
4. Peas - 1 cup
5. Ginger
6. Garlic flakes
7. Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
8. Mustard Seeds - 1tsp
9. Oil - 2tbsps
10. Fresh Curd - 1 cup
11. Lemon Juice - 2tsps (Optional)
12. Coriander Leaves - 1 cup finely chopped
13. Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
14. red chilli powder - 1tsp
15. coriander powder -1/2 tsp
16. amchur powder - 1/2 tsp

Method :

1. In a deep sauting pan, take 2 tbsps of oil and add the mustard and cumin seeds. When they start to splutter add the finely chopped onions and saute them until onions turn to golden brown color. This will take a few minutes.

2. Once the Onions are sauted, add the ginger-garlic paste and fry for few minutes until the raw smell of the ginger garlic paste is gone. After that add the finely chopped tomatoes, saute for sometime and cover with a lid. Keep on stirring for sometime until the tomatoes release the juice and till it becomes a gravy. ( In this process, you can also add some water if you want. )

3. Now, once the gravy is ready add all the spices: turmeric powder, Chilli powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, and some garam masala along with the fresh curd. Mix all this in the gravy and finally add the potatoes and peas. Add 1 cup of water. Add some salt, stir it once again and cook this covered for sometime.

4. Keep stirring frequently so that the gravy doesn't stick to the bottom. Once the subzi is done( you can test it by pressing a potato piece, it should be soft) turn off the stove, add 2tsps of lime juice for additional taste and garnish with corinader leaves.

Serve hot with Rotis, Chappathis, Parathas or Phulkas.
