Jimikand Matar ki Sabzi

jimikand matar ki sabzi

Jimikand matar ki sabzi is quite a tasty dish and very easy to make. In the recipe given below, I haven't deep fried jimikand like many people do because there is no need. Jimikand is also known as suran or yam.
Recipe of jimikand matar ki sabzi
250 gm jimikand (yam/suran)
1 cup shelled matar (green peas)
2 cups water
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp garam masala powder
2 tomatoes- pureed
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
1 1/2 tbsp oil
jimikand chopped with matar
How to make jimikand matar ki sabzi
1. Peel and wash jimikand. Chop it into medium size pieces.
2. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add cumin seeds. When they turn darker, add hing.
3. Add pureed tomato and all the spices except garam masala. Saute till oil begins to separate from the masala.
4. Add jimikand, matar, water and salt. Pressure cook for 5 minutes on high heat. Turn off the heat and open the lid of the cooker when pressure drops down naturally.
5. Add garam masala and cook for 1 more minute. Take out in a serving bowl and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot jimikand matar ki sabzi with roti or paratha.
