Aloo Gajar Matar

One of my close friends recently shared this recipe. I tried and it was lip-smacking. Thanks to my friend for sharing it and here I share it with you. Aloo Gajar Matar is majorly prepared in the winter season. It is prepared with potatoes, carrots, green peas and some spices. This recipe is a bit different from the regular one. I have used orange carrots, you can use the red ones as well.

Also try: Aloo Gobhi.
