Aloo Mutter

Aloo Mutter is a North Indian side dish suitable for Roti, Naan etc., I had 3 packs of frozen peas sitting in my freezer. MK justs gets one whenever he goes for grocery shopping without knowing whether we have used last week's stuff :-(. So after preparing Peas Pulav, Vegetable Briyani etc., I thought of making this side dish along with naan. People at home enjoyed it.

We can add a little cream to make the gravy have a restaurant touch. I did not add any sort of milk or cream but the taste was good. Try and enjoy !!!!

Aloo Mutter is sent to CWS - Cumin seeds event hosted by Sara started by Priya.
