12 small potatoes (1 1/2 pounds); washed
2 medium onion; rough chopped
3 cloves garlic
1/2 inch ginger
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
2 large tomatoes; coarsely chopped
1 cup peas
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
Directions: How to Cook Aloo Matar
Cook the potatoes until tender. Peel and set aside. In the container of a blender or food processor, puree the onions, garlic, and ginger. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the cumin. When the cumin darkens (1 to 2 seconds) add the purred onion mixture and saute until browned (about 12 minutes). Add the salt, cayenne, turmeric, and tomatoes and cook until they soften (about 5 minutes). Add the peas and water, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Halve the cooked potatoes and add them to the skillet and cook covered another 5 minutes. Mix in the garam masala just before serrving. Note: Do not overcook the potatoes in the first step.

I used a can of tomato sauce rather than fresh tomatoes (because they are not in season) and this recipe turned out fantastic! Thanks!
