Dhabas are the roadside restaurants in India, popular for spicy, flavorful foods. What makes them so phenomenal is the use of basic ingredients in their cooking. However, dhaba style recipes can be easily made at home. Not only is it hygienic but also you have more control over the ingredients.

This aloo matar dhaba style doesn’t require too much time to make. Once the potatoes have been boiled and the spice paste is ready. After that, you just need to saute the masalas and make the curry. I have used fresh green peas here. In case you don’t have fresh green peas you can use frozen peas also. Adjust the spices as per your tastebuds.
