Aloo Mutter Curry

Want to make something real quick for lunch/dinner. You can make this Indian curry using ingredients readily available in your pantry. Aloo with peas is an awesome combination as a curry which goes well with a variety of rices like lemon, coconut, mor-kuzhambu, sambar, rasamcurd, and even roti. Aloo Mutter is a super easy, filling vegetarian dish which can be made according to your spice level. 
I personally love potatoes, cauliflower and peas. Is there anyone in this world who doesn't like potatoes? Wait yes there is one, my husband ;-(. I will soon post a follow-up on how to make "Aloo gobi mutter" curry. Here you go with my favorite recipe.

  • Potato - 2
  • Peas - 1/4 cup
  • Onion (thinly sliced) - 1
  • Tomato (finely chopped) - 2
