    now grind the masala into a smooth paste...in the tomato juice itself
    without adding the water...
    peel the potato..cube to desirable size...and deepfry only until a coating comes not wait till browning...remove immediately...
    now in a kadai heat oil,
    as it heats add a tsp of sugar...let it caramalize..as the bubble brown try to raise ...put the masala and fry well ...on a sim in gas level ...fry till the aroma comes...or the oil leaves the side...now add the potato and fry for a minute then add the peas...mix well add just enough water for the vegetable to soak...now add salt according to taste and cook until potato soft ....garnish with coriander ....damn good with rotis..

    not a real version

    Hello! Sunkan,

    I'm afraid to say that the recipe u posted for punjabi aaloo matar is not the real one. Punjabis never put sugar in their curries usually. Being from north india i can say this with great confidence. If u want i can post the real north indian recipe for this.
    sorry!!

    Aloo Mutter

    Hello Sunkan,

    I like trying new recipes and i tried ur version of Aloo Mutter. I must say it turned out very well and thanks for the authentic recipe of Aloo Mutter.

    Manjula, i think every version of aloo mutter could be different, so u cannot generalise that all Punjabis dont use a little of sugar in aloo mutter. I am sure there are different variations in each recipe.

    Hi

    Hi!
    I agree with u priyaji. But north indian live in north side they generally dont use sugar in their curries. But yes, if, they are somewhere in south, west or east they sometime modify the recipies according to the region. I even know some punjabis who live in west side of India and put chicken in typical gujrati meethi daal. so its all where u live.

    and anyways fusion always taste better.

    I tried aloo mutter - Super taste! Great hit!

    Hello Sunkan,

    Thank you for posting the recipe for aloo mutter. I tried it sometime back and it turned out very well. Super taste and it was a great hit in my home. My kid too liked it who generally has an aversion for spicy gravies.
