Aloo matter is a favorite dish which I used to order in the restaurant as side dish for many Indian breads like naan, paratha, phulkas…. Many times I think of making it myself at home. It happened once and im posting here, without any reference I made this recipe and it turned out to be the same as restaurant taste. But oil I added little less used canola oil for cooking. Cooking time comes within 30min, and serves at least 4 people.
I don’t know this little kids are really attracted to such recipe, my daughter don’t like chapatti very much. But if she has a side dish like this she loves it and eats at least 2 small sized chapatti. Even she loves gobi mutter curry which I will be posting soon. Very fast moving recipes r my daughter favorite and i love to make what ever she likes , hope even all kids like this kind of hotel recipe . I am really happy to post my favorite recipe.
