Aloo Matar with Almond Gravy BM#67

One day i was in such a hurry that i had to do a quick fix dinner. Hence came up with this idea of making Aloo Matar and turned out really tasty. I served the first day with rice for quick fix.
But with the left overs the next day we had it with Roti's. I should tell you that it tasted 'Delicious!!!'
I got a approval from my son for the red gravy too.

This week i am participating in Blogging Marathon and the topic i picked is 'Go nuts'.
I thought it would fit this and hence posting it today.


Here goes the recipe..

Ingredients

2 Chopped tomatoes
1 Chopped Onion
2 Cardomom Pieces
2 Cloves
1/2 inch Giner
1 Green Chilly
2 Potatoes
1/2 cup Green peas
10-12 Almonds

Masalas
1 tea spoon Turmeric powder
1 tea spoon Chilli Powder
1 tea spoon Coriander powder
1 tea spoon Cumin powder
1 tea spoon Aamchur powder
Salt to taste

2 tea spoon Ghee

Method

In a pressure cooker add Ghee,Onions,Tomatoes, Cardomom and cloves and pressure cook upto one whistle.
Once the pressure releases add the mixture to a Mixer and puree to a smooth paste along with all the masalas (powders) as mentioned above. Add the Almonds and grind along with the puree.
Once pureed add it back to the pressure cooker, Add the cut raw potatoes and peas to the pressure cooker along with the puree. Add salt.
Add some water and close the lid and again pressure cook until one whistle. Let the pressure release and stir well and serve hot.


Notes:
Using Almonds there was no flavor change. It tastes the same and it thickens the gravy too.
Instead of Almonds you can add Cashew or Walnut too.
