Aloo Matar 

Aloo matar is a vegan, creamy, delicious and delectable Indian cuisine. Here in this creamy Aloo Matar Recipe I have added cashews to make it more flavorful and rich in texture.

Well you can prepare Aloo Matar in a different way too, just skip the cashews and cream. Instead of 3-4 tomatoes add 2 tomatoes chopped after you add ginger garlic paste, rest follow the same procedure mentioned below. That is the other way and tasty too. But my family prefers rich, thick and something different gravy other than these regular ones. So I have to make something that suits my family’s taste buds.

I usually do not add whole spices (garam masala) in my vegetable dishes other than cumin seeds but if you want you can add them. Well for flavor I have added Whole spices mix powder.
