Gajar matar ki Sabzi (Red Indian carrot and green peas curry)

Gajar matar ki sabzi is a must in winters at everyone’s house. Red Indian carrot is only available in winters. I love seasonal vegetables because they have a special taste may be because of limited time they are available. Carrot green pea curry recipe which I am presenting has a very rich and creamy flavour. It’s a big hit in my house. Very easy recipe which you can easily make, try it and let me know.
