In Indian cuisine there are unlimited number of curries using Potato / Aloo as the main ingredient (or) as part of the curry. My Mom never used onion – garlic in her recipes, hence most of my recipes which I learnt from her are without them. Irrespective of their presence, whatever dish Amma (Mom) made, was a classic for sure. 🙂 

She always taught me that the taste of any recipe should not be dependant on any one particular ingredient. But she proved that, whatever you add (or) eliminate, the taste would retain if right amount of salt and spice were added. 🙂 

This, Aloo Matar Masala / Potato Green Peas Gravy Curry, recipe is the one that I learnt from my Mom. Well, she never added garam masala, which I added additionally. So, just try this very simple recipe from my Mom, and I bet you’ll adore it.

Possible alternations for the recipe, ‘Aloo Matar Masala Sabzi / Potato Green Peas Gravy Curry’:

To use Onion and Garlic: Add 1 cup of chopped onion, and a tablespoon of finely chopped garlic after the tempering is done. Fry them until the onions soften, and then proceed with the rest of the recipe.

Using Ginger-Garlic paste: After the tempering ingredients are sautéed, add the ginger garlic paste fry for 30 sec, and then proceed with the recipe as it is.

To avoid tempering ingredients: Try to add at least mustard seeds and turmeric powder.

Adding other vegetables: This curry is made with basic veggies and basic Indian spices. So, adding any other veggies would actually ruin its original taste. But for the sake of it, other vegetables that can be added are sweet corn, eggplant.

To get more gravy: Using a potato masher, just mash few of the potato pieces and switch the flame off before the curry is thickened. Or else add ¼ cup more water, than mentioned.
