Aloo Matar Palak

We all need a pile of simple recipes which get ready in no time at all. A staple such as  aloo matar palak is a must on the menu once in few days at home. It works so well with rotis and chapathis. Just a little curd on the side may be with a small piece of pickle makes it super delicious.
The stages of making aloo matar palak is what makes it so easy to make. Chop potatoes, let them saute in some simple spices and oil. Meanwhile get palak ready, throw in matar and chopped palak. Season and let them all cook. Ready to serve, nice & simple!

You can pretty much add in kind of masala you like to these kind of sabzis. Aloo matar palak is a very forgiving type of sabzi, even a little amchur or red chilli powder is enough to flavour it. Only thing to remember is to use fresh aloo matar palak. Deliberately I did not add an ‘&’ here 🙂 Try more sabzis from FOI, aloo jeera
