This Restaurant Style Aloo Mutter recipe will come to the rescue when you want to recreate restaurant styled food. North-Indian food is one of the most popular cuisines in India. Aloo Mutter definitely makes it to the top of any vegetarian dishes prominent in most Indian restaurants. This super easy recipe on its own is Vegan too.
Aloo Mutter is such a great recipe that goes well with Indian breads. Serve with rotis, parathas or ever rice such as jeera (cumin) rice or mutter (peas) pulao. A delicious tomato and onion curry made with cumin powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder and ofcourse potato and green peas is just the perfect comfort curry.
This dish on its own is a really delicious vegan curry. However, there are different ways you can spruce up this curry, you can toss in paneer cubes instead of potatoes and make a paneer mutter masala as well. But my favourite is with potatoes.
