August 30, 2017 Motions and Emotions 5 Comments

Today I will share the recipe of aloo gobi matar. I am sharing the dry version or sukhi sabji of alu gobi matar. I have prepared it quite some time back. This was prepared for a potluck which was arranged at our yoga class to celebrate Women's Day. Now you can understand that how long this recipe  is sitting inside my folder. This was my first potluck. There were 10 to 12 people and each one brought different item. Veg and non veg both delicacies were there.  The fun part was non-vegetarian people were tasting both veg as we as non-veg dishes. I was really glad that my aloo matar gobi was hit.

Coming to the recipe, it is a bit lengthy process of cooking but not at all difficult. I always blanch cauliflower before cooking. I hope you all do the same too. I have used mustard oil which gives a distinct taste to the sabji and no one could make out (many complaints mustard oil is pungent :). If you do not want to use mustard oil, you can use refined oil. But I would suggest once you try with mustard oil and then you can make out the taste difference. It is important to heat the mustard oil properly before you add vegetables into it. Here is the recipe of aloo gobi matar for all of you....

  2. There can t be anything more comforting than this with some hot ghee Phulkas. Out of the world and always a winner recipe. One question. If I increase the tomato quantity, will it become too tangy? What s your suggestion?

    1. Thank you dear... It depends on the tomato, some of the breeds are more sour in taste (the one I have used) so it is better to adjust the quantity
