A New York lawyer's adventures with animal-free eating
Vegan Aloo Mutter
I LOVE me some Aloo Matar. It’s one of those foods that I refer to as ORGASMIC. And it’s usually made with just a bit of cream in the sauce though, so it needs to be veganized. Here, I took the easy way out and bought a jar of Patak’s Mild Curry Paste, which is awesome. It cut my prep time and ingredient list drastically, which I love. Actually, I love pretty much anything by Patak’s… They’re awesome.
1/2 onion, sliced
2 large potatoes, chopped into cubes and boiled
1 1/2 cup peas (I used frozen)
4 tbsp. Patak’s Mild Curry Paste with Cilantro and Cumin (or similar)
3/4 cup water
1 can diced tomatoes with liquid
salt and pepper
Saute the onions in some olive oil until tender. Add the potatoes and peas.
Mix the Patak’s paste with the water, then add this mixture to the pan. Cover the pan and cook until the peas are tender, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the tomatoes and continue cooking for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then enjoy!
