ALOO MATAR | POTATO & GREEN PEAS IN A TANGY GRAVY

This is such an interesting recipe! Who doesn’t love potatoes? And if it’s got tanginess with a little bit of spice in every bite, you’ll love this even more, won’t you? I made this recipe when I had a few extra boiled potatoes in the fridge and had to come up with a quick recipe to pack for lunch. What’s your excuse?
