Aloo Gajar Matar recipe without onion and garlic. This is a Punjabi style dry sabzi made with very few spices and new potatoes, fresh peas, and winter red carrots.
This simple sabzi recipe tastes best when cooked in winters because red winter carrots are sweeter in taste and together with fresh peas they taste best. This is one of the easy sabzis to make, you just need a very simple tadka/tempering of tomatoes and garam masala.
It makes a perfect sabzi to serve with freshly made roti, chapati, and paratha. I always make some extra sabzi so that I can use leftover Aloo gajar matar sabzi to make Stuffed Paratha or a sandwich filling to make these Bombay masala Toast.
