Matar ki Ghugni or more widely known as Hare Matar ki Ghugri is a dish that celebrates the fresh produce of green peas (Hare Matar).
  • 250 grams Fresh Green Peas
  • 100 grams Potatoes (cut into small cubes)
  • ¼th Cup Fresh Coriander Leaves
  • Salt
  • Mustard Oil
  • 4-5 Cloves of Garlic (finely chopped)
  • ¼ tsp Black Peppercorn (coarsely crushed)
  • 2 Green Chilies (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  1. Put 3-4 tbsp Mustard Oil in a pan. Allow Oil to heat up.
  2. Add Cumin Seeds, chopped Garlic and Chopped green chilies. Stir until Garlic becomes light brown in color.
  3. Stir in Potatoes at medium heat. Reduce the heat and cook covered on reduced heat. Potatoes get cooked in 3 mins on low heat. (Cooking time of potato time may vary based on potato cube size.)
  4. Add fresh green peas and mix well. Add some coriander leaves and salt. Mix well.
  5. Cover and cook until green peas are completely done (7 mins on low heat) (If you are using frozen peas, it would take 3 mins for peas to get cooked)
  6. After 7 mins, Peas are perfectly done. We must retain the crunchiness while cooking peas. Do not overcook, add coarsely crushed black peppercorns, remaining coriander leaves. Mix again.
  7. Switch off the heat. Ghugni is ready to be served.
  8. Tip: Heat mustard Oil till its smoking point and then lower the heat. As the temperature reduces, you can now start cooking food in this Oil. This enhances the flavor of the dish.
