It’s become difficult to write these days. No, I am not facing writer’s block or running out of recipes. It’s just that I have been so caught up and busy in both my personal & professional life that it’s difficult to find the time to write blog posts.

But don’t worry. I haven’t disappeared and once things settle down or I somehow discover there are more than 24 hours in a day I will start writing a bit more regularly. Till then, here’s a recipe that is a family favorite. A basic aloo matar sabzi – making it is pretty basic but I can’t tell you how delicious it tastes after a long hard day. We make sure we add a bit of gravy to the salaam so that we can eat it with rice or soak up the roti with the sabzi ka salan. YUM!

Would love it if you could try out and rate the recipe, and let me know how it was in the comments below!
