Aloo mutter is very common curry which every house hold makes it. This is a life saver recipe when you are in rush but you want your family to eat tasty and wholesome meal. Many recipes say to use boiled potatoes in onion-tomato gravy. But I personally don’t like that taste because by making that way you never get potatoes with that much absorbed flavors. When you cook everything in pressure cooker then potatoes and peas has time to absorb every masala in them and make it more flavorful. I added store bou
