Punjabi Aloo Mutter (Peas and Potato Gravy)

Aloo and Mutter - a combination universally loved by all; and it finds expression in a unique manner in every cuisine.  I remember an advertisement that said " Aloo Mutter, aur bahut saari mutter. Aur garam, garam Pooriyan!"
I love to make this gravy. Simple and tasty. Today it found it's way into my son's lunch box, along with Chapathis.

Potatoes - 1.5 cups
Peas - 1.5 cups

Peel and cut potatoes into largish (about 1.25") cubes.
