This gobi matar is semi-dry sabzi recipe. Gobi and matar are cooked in tomato puree with spices. While the cooking process, gobi will absorb all the flavors and will become so succulent and tasty.

This sabzi is made with very minimal and basic ingredients that you will find very easily in your pantry. If you translate it in english, Gobi = Cauliflower and Matar = Green peas. So it is also called cauliflower peas masala.

Here in USA, I get good cauliflower all year around. But In India, you get the best one during its season. If you have bought it out-of-season, it may have chances of worms or bugs in it. I have already shared the method of cleaning cauliflower in gobi shimla mirch recipe.

Buying cauliflower tips: Look for clean and creamy white with compact buds. Black spotted or dull colored one should be avoided. The one surrounded by thick green leaves are better and fresher.

Here I have used frozen green peas. In USA, I find the best quality organic peas from Costco frozen section. The one you get from Indian grocery stores are not flavorful at all (in my opinion). But if you get the fresh peas in India. Go for that. As fresh one are much better than frozen ones.

Tomatoes along with amchur powder add slight tang or sour taste to the dish which is perfect flavor.
