Aloo Mattar Indian Potato with Peas and Cumin Recipe
1 1/4 lb. Potatoes, peeled, diced, and set in a bowl of cool water
2 tbsp. oil (I like mustard, but peanut, canola, safflower etc work)
2-4 tsp. Cumin seeds (Depending on your preference)
2 tsp minced ginger
1 tbsp. minced garlic (or less, to taste)
2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. salt (or more, to taste)
1/8 tsp turmeric
1 cup frozen peas (or more)
* Salt to taste
Heat oil in your cast iron pan and add cumin seeds. Add your diced potatoes and then mix in your minced garlic and ginger, coriander, salt, and turmeric. Combine thoroughly and then lower heat. Cover and cook for 15 minutes and then add the frozen peas. Combine, and then cook for 10 or more minutes until potatoes are tender. Taste, add any seasonings you like, and serve.
