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.[1] It is a vegetarian dish.[2] The sauce is generally cooked with garlic, ginger, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, cumin seeds and other spices.[3]

Aloo mutter is also available commercially in ready-to-eat packets, manufactured by companies like Tasty Bite, which need to be heated and served.[4] It is also used as a filling in some variations of dosa.[5]
