Potato and pea curry /Aaloo matar (mutter) curry

‘Aaloo mutter’ is a favorite dish from Indian cuisine, especially from north India and Punjab region. It is prepared using potatoes and fresh peas in a spicy creamy curry; which is made from tomato/curd. Here I used curd and regular ingredients. You may add dash of butter and fresh coriander leaves to enhance the flavor.

I used here pressure cooking method, it can used as kadahi (wok) cooking too.
