Aloo Matar Ghugri


Green Peas are little pellets of nutrients. They may look small, but are loaded with nutrients and minerals. Even though there are spices used in this recipe, they can be kept at a minimum to actually let the peas shine through.


A dish widely prepared in Uttar Pradesh, this traditional UP style Matar Ki Ghugri is made using peas and just a few spices. Make it with the most tender winter peas while they are in season. The dish is liked by all my family members. The recipe is very simple, easy to make, delicious.
