Sukhi (dry) Aloo Matar | Indian Style Peas and Potato

There are so many ways Alu/Aloo Matar is prepared,every one has their own special recipe to this Popular Indian Veg Dish.. Aloo Matar is made into a gravy when served with rice and made dry to go with rotis.

Today i shall show you my way of making this easy dish,and also a very simple tip to get the "Perfect Alu Matar ki Sabzi".
Notice how the potato chunks are intact and not broken or mashed.

Tip to keep potatoes intact while cooking and also how to make them more flavourful.

After peeling the potatoes,wash once to remove the starch.Then cut into chunks or any shape you want.

Before cooking boil the potatoes with a pinch turmeric,salt and shahi jeera for 5 min,no longer than that.

This helps to get added flavours into the potatoes,and they always keep their shape after cooking.
Do try it and see the difference.
                                                       do not over boil,5 min is all you need.
