Potato (aloo) and green peas (matar) are cooked together in a rich tomato sauce. This traditional punjabi dish uses fragrant spices and simple ingredients to create a wholesome and comforting meal.
An important step in this recipe is blooming the cumin seeds in oil at the beginning. This releases the aromatic compounds of the spice into the oil which permeates the whole sauce. This dish is fast and filling and is usually served with flatbread such as naan or roti and fluffy basmati rice.
