Gajar Matar ki Sabzi | गाजर मटर की सब्ज़ी | Carrots With Green Peas Indian Style
Here i am giving a traditional way of cooking Gajar Matar Sabji . This is popular Punjabi cuisine and the main ingredients are Carrot and Green peas in tomato gravy . If you don’t like tomato you can also use amchoor powder instead of tomato . Winter season so I used lots of ginger . Also authentic way so used Ghee . You can also use any vegetable oil instead of ghee .
In Hong kong we cannot get the fresh red Indian carrot easily . So i am using here the Australian carrot available whole year and also fresh . It is orange coloured and taste is also little less sweet .
