Aloo Matar ~ Dry Version


In winters, Aloo matar is one favorite and comforting curry that I like most whether gravy one or dry ; this is so soothing. This dry curry is my mother in law's recipe that I learned from her and prepare it occasionally.

 I like to pack it in my daughter's and hubby's lunchbox along with some paratha and pickle. Linking this entry to +srivalli jetti 's monthly CCChallenge . So let's start the recipe . Yum
