Alu Mattar
Author : Vahchef
Main Ingredient : Potato
Servings : 6 persons
Published date : November 07, 2016

Ingredients used in Alu Mattar
• Ghee - 1/4 cup.
• Fresh ginger root -- scraped, and finely - 1 tablespoon.
• Garlic -- finely chopped - 1 tablespoon.
• Onions -- finely chopped - 1/2 cup.
• Salt - 1+1/2 tea spoon.
• Ground cumin - 1 tea spoon.
• Turmeric - 1/2 tea spoon.
• Ground hot red pepper - 1/4 tea spoon.
• Ripe tomatoes - 3 numbers.
• Fresh coriander - 3 tablespoons.
• Fresh green peas - 2 cup.
• Boiling type potato - 1 large.
• Water - 1 cup.
• Garam masala - 1/2 tea spoon.
  • In a heavy 2- to 3-quart saucepan, heat the ghee over high heat until a drop of water flicked into it splutters instantly.
  • Stir in the ginger and garlic, then add the onions and salt.
  • Lower the heat to moderate and, stirring constantly, fry the onions for 7 or 8 minutes until they are soft and golden brown.
  • Watch carefully for any sign of burning and regulate the heat accordingly.
  • Add the cumin, turmeric and red pepper, and stir in the tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of the fresh coriander.
  • Still stirring, cook briskly for 5 minutes, until most of the liquid in the pan evaporates and the mixture is thick enough to draw away from the sides and bottom of the pan in a dense mass.
  • Drop in the peas and potatoes and turn them about with the spoon until they are evenly coated with the tomato mixture.
  • Stir in the water, bring to a boil over high heat, cover tightly, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the peas and potatoes are tender but still intact.
  • Taste for seasoning and serve at once, sprinkled with the remaining tablespoon of coriander and the garam masala.
