Aloo gobi matar (potato, cauliflower & peas): the meal, the dish, the leftovers, and more vegetable stuffed parathas (flatbreads)…

 At the weekend, one of the dinners I prepared was an Indian feast, which included marinated chicken kebabs for my boys, this kala chana (brown chickpea) curry, which was a masala sauce I had created myself and added the chickpeas to..

…a rajma (red kidney bean) curry…inspired by this recipe from Mallika Basu

 …pimped baked beans for my boy (I drained off as much of the liquid as possible then added my own purΓ©ed masala sauce and cooked them in that, which turned out to be a great success!)…
  …and, this…

…aloo gobi matar, which is potatoes, cauliflower and peas, cooked with red onions and spices. I followed Aruna’s recipe for aloo gobi and added the peas to that. 

And of course, there were naan breads πŸ™‚

It was a very tasty dinner and the aloo gobi matar, with the lovely sweetness of the peas, was a great addition. And of course, maybe the best bit, there was lots of lovely leftovers…I’ve still got a big dish of the rajma curry in the fridge today! 

I finished off half of the potato, cauliflower and peas for lunch yesterday with added quinoa and homous… 

…and the other half I stuffed into flatbreads and successfully tempted my son with them πŸ™‚ He didn’t eat the vegetables as they were in the original dish, but he happily ate them stuffed into bread! 

I followed the recipe I used in my previous post, replacing the broccoli with some of the mashed aloo gobi matar… 

  And again, grilled some cheese on the leftover breads! Why not? It worked so well previously, why not do it again…and again?! 

I do like this way of using up leftovers but also of getting more vegetables into my darling child. He will literally eat any of the breads in make, stuffed with whatever vegetables – success! And they’re fun to make, especially if little hands want to join in πŸ™‚

    Your aloo gobi matar looks so so good as do the Parathas. I used the remaining Alu Gobi to makeParathas too. Saves me the trouble of eating roti with sabzi. 😊😊😊

        Have you noticed I don’t post too many Paratha recipes? It is only because I hate rolling then out. Mine seem to have a mind of their own and take shape at will. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    I always wanted to make these stuffed flat goodies, but I guess I’ve been too much of a wimp to go for it, it does seem like a labor of love!

    you did make a complete feast this past weekend! your whole family is very lucky, and definitely well-fed… πŸ˜‰

    I like the addition of peas in the aloo gobi, it must give it a subtle sweetness. So are we going to see a step by step tutorial on your stuffed parathas? πŸ™‚ I think you’ve mastered it very well. I’ve only once made parathas that were not plain…..wholewheat and spinach, they turned out super and I even got to blog about it.
