It is a winter favourite sabji in India as carrots and peas are available fresh. I do not get the dark red carrots here. So I have used the orange one.

Recipes with Carrots

And I love the orange carrots equally. I make this winter’s favourite dessert No Ghee No Mawa, Gajar Halwa with this. Another favourite of mine is a simple party No Onion No Garlic Carrot and Peas Pulao.

And if you want to use carrots in a completely different recipe then try this Wholemeal and Oats Carrot Crackers or this Sugarless & Vegan Apple and Carrot Loaf.

Recipe process of Gajar Aloo Matar Sabji

So today’s recipe is quite simple. All I do is a tadka or tempering in asafoetida, cumin and green chillies. To that, I add the veggies along with turmeric, salt and a bit of garam masala.

Store brought asafoetida has wheat in it, so gluten intolerant people can either skip it completely or use the original asafoetida which does not have wheat.

The vegetables are then cooked on the slow stove until done. I like to make such veggies in my cast iron pan as it adds to the taste as well helps in my day to day iron content.

One can use fresh peas or frozen peas in this veggie. I have never used frozen carrots, but I think it will work as well.

Variations to the Sabji

One can add onion and garlic to this sabji and then simply saute it along with spices. One can even add tomatoes to this.

Use of Leftover Sabji

If you have this sabji left then you can mash it finely and make stuffed paratha. At times we make more of this Gajar, Aloo, Matar sabji to make paratha. It does taste delicious so give it a try. The paratha can be enjoyed with simple yoghurt or pickle.

My pics are not that good and might not do justice to the sabji. But I am still sharing this as it was a request from one of my readers. It was requested in my Punjabi Thali post. Here I have shared this Gajar Aloo Matar sabji as part of the thali.

I prepared a adapted version. Used 1.5 tsp of red chilli powder instead of green chillies and 1/2 tsp of Dhansak Masala Powder instead of Garam Masala. Sabji was delicious. We enjoyed eating it with Rice as well as Chapatis. Thank you.
