There are so many regional variations of this dish is available across India 🇮🇳, let me share with you the traditional Punjabi style  Aloo Matar Recipe (Potato & Green Peas Curry). This recipe is my personal favourite and it’s very easy and simple to make.

First of all the powdered spices are cooked in vegetable oil prior to adding onion and ginger-garlic paste, then potatoes are green peas are added and cooked to perfection. I have used Kashmiri red chilly powder for this recipe and if you don’t it handy, you can add regular red chilly powder. Kashmiri red chilly has an unique bright red colour and a very strong flavour which is the key in this recipe.
