  • Set a pan over medium heat. Add oil.
  • Once it's hot, add cumin seeds and let them splutter for 30-40 seconds, or until they're brown.
  • Add garlic + ginger + chili + onion. Stir-sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until golden-brown.
  • Add potatoes and stir-sauté for 1 minute. Then cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.
  • *After 5 minutes* Uncover the pan and give it a quick mix. Add tomatoes + turmeric powder + Kashmiri red chili powder + cumin powder + coriander powder + dried mango powder (amchur) + salt.
  • Stirring continuously, cook for 2 minutes.
  • Then cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.
  • *After 5 minutes* Uncover the pan and give it a quick mix. Add green peas + water. After a quick-stir, cover the pan and cook everything for 15 minutes over medium heat.
  • *After 15 minutes* Uncover the pan. Using a potato masher (or the back of a ladle), gently mash around 1/3 part of the potatoes.
  • Turn off the heat. Add freshly chopped cilantro and give everything a nice mix.
  • Aloo Matar is now ready. Transfer to serving bowl(s) and enjoy with rice, roti, paratha or your fav flatbread.


  1. Feel free to adjust the quantity of spices to your liking.
  2. If you don't have dried mango powder, you can simply drizzle fresh lemon juice at the end.
