Aloo Matar

We, BMers put in a lot of effort to showcase some authentic Indian food from various states in India last month. In our efforts, we realized that there were many which needed the spot light. So here is another opportunity to make use of as part of BM #40. I have chosen to showcase some unused posts of last month for Week 2.

This was in my drafts for quite some time but the pictures went missing at the time. So I had to post Missi Roti instead. I realized that the pictures were there in the folder all the time and I happened to conveniently overlook them. 

Needless to say, this was a delightful addition to our dining table and the kids loved it.

So Aloo Matar it is for Day 1 ..

Ingredients - 

Aloo, peeled, cubed 3 cups
Peas, shelled (fresh or frozen) 3/4 cup
Onions, finely chopped 3/4 cup

Seasoning (Oil 2 Tbsp, Cumin seeds 1 tsp)

Aloo Matar

Method Of Preparation -

Coarsely powder the ingredients listed under 'To coarsely powder' and set aside.

In a heated pressure cooker, add oil and cumin seeds.
