Aloo_Matar_Potato_Green_Peas_Tomato_Gravy_1 Aloo Matar (Potato and Green Peas in Tomato Gravy) is a hot spicy gravy that suits well with all types of rice, chappati, naan and poori. I blend tomatoes to get nice colour and taste of the gravy. Also fresh green peas taste better in tomato gravy.

  • Potato – 2 no
  • Juicy tomato – 2 no Aloo_Matar_Potato_Green_Peas_Tomato_Gravy_2
