Gajar -matar / Carrot -peas stir fry

Gajar – matar or carrot and peas are much loved vegetable in Indian households during the winters.

I usually cook it sauteed to maintain the crunch of the vegetables. (It goes well with a few pegs) ๐Ÿ˜›

Presenting here Gajar -matar/ carrot peas stir fry from Winter Platter 3.

    Hi Andy. I’m so glad you shared this. Indian food is one of my all-time faves – saag gosht and butter chicken. I like that you used cumin seeds instead of powder! Happy cooking!
