Aloo-Gajar-Matar Subzi (Peas Carrot Potato Curry)

Potato is a universal favorite and it has been a  favorite of mine since childhood. Even today, when I go home, I crave for just one thing - simple potato fry. But we know it is not the ideal food if you are watching your weight. My husband insists there is potato in every curry I make. Now that is not possible always, but whenever it is I try to make it healthy. So, I made potato-carrot-peas curry (aloo-gajar-matar) which not only has the taste of potato(aloo) but also the goodness of carrot(gajar) and peas(matar). Gajar is optional but it brings a good color to the curry.


Ingredients:
5-6 Boiled potatoes in salt and lightly smashed
1/2 cup green peas (matar)
1/2 cup carrots cut in to small pieces (gajar)
1 big onion copped
1 big tomato chopped
2 green chillis chopped
1/4 tsp garlic paste
1/4 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
salt to taste
coriander leaves


Process:
Heat oil in a pan and put the cumin seeds. When they splutter, add the garlic, ginger paste and green chillis. Stir for few seconds.
Then add the onions and mix well. Once they get transparent, add the coriander powder and mix well.
Add the tomatoes then along with the turmeric powder and half of chilli powder. When the oil starts separating, add the carrots and mix well. Sprinkle a bit of water so that carrots can start getting cooked.
After about 3-4 minutes, add the potatoes and green peas. Add the salt and rest of the chilli powder and mix well. Add 1 cup water. Cover the vessel and let it cook. 
Keep stirring ocassionally. When the curry is thick or according to your liking, add the garam masala and mix well.
Garnish it with coriander leaves and turn off the heat. Serve hot with roti or rice.
