Gobi Aloo Matar ki Sabzi is a simple and quick everyday sabzi or a dry vegetable made using simple everyday ingredients. It is a quick and easy sabzi that goes well with roti’s or simple dal rice.
I love such simple and quick sabzi. Reason being quick to make and loaded with nutrients. Secondly such sabzis are part of our everyday meal. I Was born and brought up, where we would be having a full meal with Dal, Rice, Roti, Sabzi. Till date we follow this at both my mother’s place and in-laws. Though at my house, it is less frequent now. Such sabzis makes me nostalgic as well as for me it is a comforting food. Yes you can call me crazy, but when given an option, I would opt for such wholesome meals.
Gobi Aloo Matar ki Sabzi
So when I am making a full thali I try to make a simple dry sabzi. Today’s sabzi is again a simple tadka in onion , followed by tomato, spices and veggies. Oil used is very less, just to saute the onion. The sabzi is cooked on slow to medium flame.
Using Less oil and no water
I use less oil in my sabzis and do not like to add water to my dry sabzis. Generally whenever I cook the dry vegetable, I use the water from the lid being used. What I mean here is, when the vegetable is getting cooked droplets of water is formed on the inner side of the lid. So when I stir my vegetables in between, I open the lid in such a way that the droplets fall in the pan instead of anywhere else. This is something which I learnt from my mom and follow it till date. In this way even with less oil and no extra water you can cook a delicious sabzi. This water will be nutritious too right?
No Onion No Garlic Version of Gobi Aloo Matar ki Sabzi
At my mom’s place this sabzi is made without onion, garlic and tomato. But now I generally make it with it. If you do not eat onion and garlic, simply make a tadka in Jeera, add the tomato, veggies, spices like turmeric, coriander powder, red chilly powder and salt. Basically all the remaining ingredients and cook.
So today’s #232 theme for FoodieMonday is GoforGobi. It was suggested by Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook . She asked us to make any dish with Gobi.

This is one of the most wonderful and favorite combo for most of us. Sabzi looks so simple to make yet so flavorful. I make it almost the same way and we all love to eat with chapati.

Gobhi aloo matar sabzi looks scrumptious. Loved the no onion and no garlic version too. Just need some rotis to polish it off.

Such a simple sabzi, but a very flavourful and satisfying one. Would pair beautifully with rotis and parathas. Love the recipe, Renu!

Nothing beats a classical indian gobi aloo matar ki sabzi and top it up with some nice coriander garnishing and there you have it a mouth watering lunch. The best combination with that would be mixed raita and garlic naan.
