In Indian Cuisine, there are unlimited curries  using Aloo/Potato either as a main ingredient (or) as a part of the curry. Amma (Mom) never used onion & garlic in her recipes, hence even my recipes in my blog are mostly without them. Irrespective of their absence, the curries / any dish that Amma made was for sure, a classic. She always taught me that the taste of a recipe should not be dependant on any one particular ingredient. Whatever you add or eliminate the taste would retain if right amount of Salt & Spice are added. 🙂 

This, Aloo matar / potato peas gravy curry, recipe is the one I learnt from my Mom. Ofcourse she never used garam masala, which I added additionally. So, just try this very simple recipe of my Mom, I bet you’ll adore it! 

Its a Vegan, Gluten free, No Onion, No Garlic curry which can be served as a side with roti, chapathi, plain rice, any pulao, any bread.

Tips:

  • If you prefer Onions & garlic, you can add them (chopped) along with the ginger and pan fry them.
  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • Keep the flame on, until you get the desired consistency of curry. 
  • You can add 1 tablespoon of chickpea flour / besan at the end to thicken. That’s optional. I didn’t.
  • This curry can be stored in the refrigerator up to 1 week and re-heat before serving.

Result:

  • The taste of this, Aloo matar masala / potato peas gravy, is so delectable that we will surely go for another serving.
  • Though this curry doesn’t have onions & garlic, because of the fresh masala/spice powders, the aroma & taste easily enhanced.
  • We had this curry as a side dish with Poori/Puffed Indian Bread.
