Gajar Matar sabzi or carrot peas sabzi is a simple every day curry that can be whipped up in no time. This gajar matar sabzi calls for minimal spices and packs a punch in terms of flavors. Needless to say, carrot and peas are a match made in heaven. I love anything that calls for carrots and peas. And Lil A loves this combination too. The bright orange and green colors attract kids too. Brownie points there, i tell ya.
Back home, this sabzi used to be something that i made frequently during winters when there were those red carrots aplenty in the markets. But after shifting to Singapore, red carrots have become a rarity. So, i just make do with the regular orange carrots available here year round. This gajar matar sabzi uses orange carrots and frozen peas. But in case you find fresh green peas and red carrots, please do not ever pass up the opportunity to make this simple yet amazing curry.
