Video Tutorial: Aloo Tamatar Mattar Ki Subji/ Potatoes Tomatoes Peas Curry

Less time to cook?

Don’t know what to cook tonight?

Not feeling well and still need to cook something?

Bachelor; away from home and want a recipe that is easy?

If the answers of the above questions are positive then you must try this Aloo Tamatar Mattar Ki Subji/ Potatoes Tomatoes Peas Curry.

A curry that is quick, needs no fancy preparation, and uses minimal ingredients that every kitchen possesses. 
Whenever I have little time or no mood to prepare dinner, this warm, spicy, tangy subji comes in my mind. Just chop potatoes and tomatoes roughly, add the peas with simple Indian massala and you are ready to go. This curry is made in different style, the royal way where garlic and onions are added in gravy with fried potatoes; or cooked in kadai with boiled potatoes; or the drier version with less water. Whatever the method be, the fact is that everyone loves this.

In winters when peas are available in abundance most household makes this dish. I made it in the simplest way possible, no onion, no garlic, no tomato puree, no boiled potatoes.... Basically I mixed everything in the pressure cooker and waited till 4 whistles.Not to forget I added just 2 teaspoons of oil which means this is healthier when compared to other Punjabi recipes. When I opened the cooker, the potatoes and peas were coated with tomato and spices to the right consistency-ah! delightful. You can watch the video below to understand how easy it is.

Next time when you are in hurry and still want to make a subji you know what to cook-right?

2 chopped potatoes
4 medium tomatoes
2 cups peas
2 teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon cumin/jeera
1/4 teaspoon aseofteida/heeng
1/2 teaspoon turmeric/haldi
2 teaspoon coriander powder/dhaniya
1 and half teaspoon red chilli powder/lal mirch
1/4 teaspoon dry mango powder/amchur
2 glasses water

Watch the video

I have used frozen peas, but fresh peas will taste better.
Use the water as per the consistency you want. More water means runnier and vice versa.
Add curry leaves and silted green chillies with cumin seeds for better taste.

Mild spicy, warm and tangy.
