Aloo Mutter - Potato Peas - Vegan gravy for rice, roti - Vegetarian gravy for rice, roti, chapathi, Naan

As you notice I don't have much of peas base recipe. That is because my 2nd son is not a big fan of peas. But I have decided to try some peas dishes when I can find some alternative for him. Other day I had some side dish left from previous day which was his favourite. I have tried this peas masala. Rest of my family loved it
