Adding Aloo to Gobhi Gajar Matar (Mixed Veg customisation)

Adding more vegetables to turn our Gobi Gajar Matar Sabzi (Cauliflower Carrot and green Peas).

What I would do if I wanted to add Potatoes to the mix?

Aloo (Potato) ends up cooking much more slowly compared to the other veggies.

  • Pressure cook a Potato in water
    (about 100g if you’re cooking for 2 people, wash, make 4 length wise slits in the potato all over, and put into pressure cooker for 2 whistles or 2 mins on an electric pressure cooker)

  • The moment the pressure cooker can open, wash the potato in cold water

  • Peel and cut into 1" x 1" cubes

  • Drop into the upliance along with the carrots and peas

Alternately, if you have a microwave oven, you can submerge the potato in water, dump it into the microwave for 15 mins at high heat (with slits). The rest of the recipe remains the same.
