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) 😛
Presenting here Gajar -matar/ carrot peas stir fry from Winter Platter 3.
Here’s what I did…………..
1 cup – chopped carrots
1/4 cup – shelled peas
1 nos – roughly chopped medium sized onion
1 nos – finely chopped green chili
1 tsp – oil
1/2 tsp – grated ginger
1/2 tsp – black pepper powder
pinch of cumin seeds
salt to taste
Heat oil in pan and temper with cumin seeds. Add the onion, ginger and green chili and fry till soft. Add the carrot and peas, salt and cover. Cook on a low flame till the vegetable softens.
Add the pepper powder and increase the flame. Stir well and cook till moisture dries up.
Serve hot with chapati or any other flat bread.
Happy cooking !! 🙂
Cheers !! 😀

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!
