Carrot Peas Fenugreek/ Gajar Matar Methi Subzi

Gajar Methi Matar is my kitchen experiment; I made it when I had nothing else in my fridge but only carrots, fenugreek and peas. Methi/ Fenugreek bring very nice aroma and taste to this dish. Carrots and frozen peas are easily available throughout the year, so I make this dish very often.

  • 2 carrots washed, peeled & cut into small pieces
  • One large bowl peas
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
  • 1 pinch of hing (asafoetida)
  • ½  tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
  • ½ cup chopped methi (fenugreek)
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 2 tsp dhaniya powder (coriander powder)
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½  tsp garam masala powder
  • ½ tsp dry mango powder (amchur/khattai)
  • Salt

  1. Heat oil in the pan, add cumin and asafoetida and allow cumin to crackle.
  2. Then add in it chopped carrot, peas, fenugreek, salt and turmeric. Mix well and cover it with the lid
  3. When carrots are half done mix in it coriander powder, red chilli powder and water. Stir well.
  4. When carrots are soft add dry mango powder and mix. Its ready.

Serve hot with Fulkas.
