Aloo Mutter seems to be extremely simple to make off the top of my head... Any variation and it still tastes good... This time I added some broccoli. I avoid boiling my potatoes before adding them... I prefer to cook them in the sauce itself.
- 1 1/4 pounds potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
- vegetable oil, as needed
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon kalonji seeds
- 2 tablespoons cumin/coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- salt, to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
- 1 teaspoon kitchen king masala
- 1 teaspoon dried fenugreek leaves
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1- 15 ounce can tomatoes, ground
- 2 green chilies, chopped
- 1/4 head of broccoli florets
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup water
Heat oil in a medium saucepan until hot and sizzle cumin and kalonji seeds a few seconds. Add in potatoes, broccoli and green chilies. Fry a few minutes until potatoes start to soften. Add tomato sauce, cumin/coriander powder, salt, paprika and water. Simmer until potatoes are soft, adding water as necessary. When potatoes are done, add in kitchen king masala, garam masala, fenugreek leaves, sugar, and frozen peas and simmer until sauce thickens.
