Gajar Matar ki Sabzi

 gajar-matarGajar Matar Sabzi recipe a very common dish of every home. Carrot and green peas dish its super delicious. Mostly people make it in dry but trying some twist i made it in gravy so that i can have this yummy dish with rice even.

Carrots / gajar and Green peas/ matar is the best combination vegetable. i added some cashew nuts into this recipe so the consistency of the gravy gets thick and the curd will make it tangy. its my own tried and tested dish. Flavor of dry spices plays the important role into it.

Its a very simple dish but best to serve during your parties and any functions. you cane serve them with rice , roti’s or tortilla’s.

So do follow the very simple steps and make this yummy dish ūüôā
