Kaddu Aloo Matar sabzi | How to make Pumpkin, Potato and Green Peas curry – Sharing a simple, hearty, comforting pumpkin, potato and green peas semi gravy recipe that can be served as a side dish with rice, roti, paratha or puri.

Pumpkin is called as Kaddu in Hindi, is an everyday vegetable in Indian homes. It is a good source of minerals, potassium, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Its low calories and high fiber contents make it a perfect vegetable for the weight watchers and the diabetic.

This kaddu aloo matar sabzi is an onion, ginger, garlic, and tomato based curry. Here I have sauteed potato and pumpkin cubes with onion. Hence the veggies are cooked in their own juice. Easy… isn’t it… and tasty too. Adjust the spices as per your choice.

This curry can also be made without potato. But addition of potato makes it even more delicious. Therefore I always love to add potato in this recipe.
