Aloo mutter (also spelled aloo mattar or aloo matar) is a Punjabi dish from the Indian subcontinent which is made from potatoes (Aloo) and peas (matter) in a spiced creamy tomato based sauce. It is a vegetarian dish. The sauce is generally cooked with garlic, ginger, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, cumin seeds and other spices.
Aloo mutter is also available commercially in ready-to-eat packets, manufactured by companies like Tasty Bite, which need to be heated and served. It is also used as a filling in some variations of dosa.
A dish that can be easily prepared at home with the regular ingredients, Aloo Mutter is an easy recipe to learn. The thick tomato-based gravy goes well with rotis, chapatis and naan. Give it a final garnish with a dash of butter and few sprigs of coriander leaves.
