Alu Mattar Curry/Potato Green Peas Curry

Alu Mattar Curry is again a North Indian Dish. This is a kind of dish that goes well with almost all kinds of rotis, chapathis, pulav recipes and so on. I prepared it along with plain pulav and it was an excellent combination. It can be taken with poori also.



1 Cup Potato pieces
½ Cup Green Peas/Battani (fresh)
2 Tomatoes (chopped)
1 Onion (chopped)
1 ½ tsp Chilly powder
1 tsp Dhaniya powder/Coriander Powder
