Matar Gobi Aloo ki Sabzi (Light Cauliflower, Green Peas and Potato Curry)


This is the most simple preparation that we often make for our breakfast during winter….. Matar-Gobi-Aloo ki Sabzi. This has a very subtle flavor and can be cooked in 15 minutes. Serve this with simple hand toasted roti, paratha or bread in breakfast. I like the nutty flavor of cumin seeds with asafetida in this curry. And I do not use much spices to keep the flavor simple and basic. Here goes the recipe!

Ingredients to serve 4

  • Matar or Green Peas – ½ cup
  • Cauliflower – 1 ½ cups (Cut into small florets)
  • Potato – 1 (Medium – cut into small cubes)
  • Cumin Seeds – ½ tsp
  • Bay leaf – 1
  • Asafetida or Hing – 1 pinch
  • Ginger Paste – 1 ½ tsp
  • Green Chilli – 2 -3
  • Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
  • Cumin Powder – ½ tsp
  • Coriander Powder – ¼ tsp
  • Garam Masala Powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Mustard Oil – 1 Tbsp
  • Salt – Ta taste
  • Chopped Coriander – For garnishing


  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and temper the oil with cumin seeds and asafetida. When the cumin seeds start to crackle add ginger paste and potatoes. Mix well and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Next add all the dry masalas, cauliflower and green peas.
  3. Adjust salt and sauté for few more minutes.
