Soya Aloo Matar / Soya Potato Green Peas Curry

Every one makes aloo matar, but my love for soya won't let me cook anything without it. so I added soya in it and believe me, it changes the whole simple dish in to new dish. You can make this dish without soya too. And depend upon your taste you can make less or more gravy too. I was having with dal so didn't make too much gravy but that's the only dish you are making and having with rice, go ahead and make some gravy to eat with it. Its simple , easy yet tasty dish. You can add paneer and make it matar paneer.

Ingredients :

2 small potatoes , cubed
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 /2 cup soaked and squeezed soya granules
1 onion - finely chopped
4 almonds
1 small cinnamon stick
5 cloves
1 tbsp. khas khas (poppy seeds)
1 tbsp. whole coriander
8 black pepper
2 green cardamom
2 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. tomato puree
1 tsp. garam masala
1 tsp. red chili powder
green coriander for garnish
salt to taste


Make a powder of Almonds, cinnamon sticks, cloves , khas khas, coriander, black pepper, cardamom.

In a pot, add oil and add onion. cook till it changes color, add tomato paste and mix it.
Then mix powder of almonds and other spices.
Add garam masala and red chili powder and cook for 2 minutes.
Add potatoes and peas, soya and add water .
cook till potatoes are done. You need thick gravy when its done, take it off the stove and add coriander leaves and serves hot with Indian breads or rice.

You can add turnips instead of potatoes or any root vegetables too.
