Matar Kachhi Haldi Sabzi or Green Peas Turmeric Curry is a winter speciality from Rajasthan. The memory of matar kachhi haldi sabzi recipe goes back to my visit to Rajasthan years back, they have an amazing colorful culture and cuisine.

I learn’t this recipe from a cook of the hotel we stayed in Jodhpur, who used to serve us with authentic Rajasthani dishes. This dish is winter delicacy; turmeric rhizomes with many health benefits like anti-inflammatory, antiseptic properties are harvested during winter and used in many tasty dishes.

Green peas is another such veggies mainly seen during winters. This curry has a strong flavor of turmeric and not much frill’s in masala. It’s pretty simple recipe which goes well with any Indian flat bread.

If you are interested in using fresh turmeric in other dishes, I have few recipes like turmeric saffron milk, carrot turmeric soup.

Few important notes to be followed

Fry the turmeric root in oil well to avoid bitter after taste and also helps in maximum absorption by our body.

After adding curd, cook on low heat, otherwise there are chances of spliting.

The thickness of curry can be adjusted either with water or curd.
