I simply love to make this veg curry regularly because of the deliciousness. 
This Indian-style potato carrot peas sabzi is one of the popular dry curries from the Punjab region. It is an ideal side dish for roti, phulkas, paratha, naan, chapati, dal tadka, rasam rice, curd rice, and lemon rice.

In Hindi, the aloo refers to potato, gajar is called carrots, and matar means green peas. I mostly prefer fresh veggies except for frozen peas to this recipe. But you can use frozen veggies as well.
