There are two more aloo matar recipes on the blog
1) Gujarati style aloo matar – it has no onion no garlic.
2) Sookha aloo matar – this is dry version. I usually serve this with roti, dal-rice.

today’s recipe is the Punjabi style of making aloo mutter. It has gravy made from onion and tomatoes. For making this recipe, very basic spices are used. Still this taste fantastic.

This is one of my go to recipe whenever I am in rush. The ingredients used are very common, basic and I always have them in my kitchen. I quickly chop onion, potatoes and prep other ingredients which will take about 10 minutes. Then throw everything in pressure cooker and let the cooker do its own work. While it is pressure cooking, I make paratha. And I have delicious dinner ready within an hour.

It is ready to serve. If not serving right away then keep it covered. Keep in mind that, as it sits the gravy will get thicker. Because potatoes have tendency to absorb the liquid.

Serving suggestion: Serve aloo matar masala with roti/phulka or paratha. It can be served with plain rice or jeera rice too. I always like to serve kachumber on side.
