aloo matar!!!



why aloo matar??

well because we being together since college times, have a very long history

but to cut it short, I was called aloo(the Hindi vernacular name for potatoes) by my friends with a lot of love they said and I trusted them(ignoring the hidden body shaming ?? maybe).

and my husband was called matar( the Hindi name for peas) just because his name starts with the letter P!!!! (lame I know, but this is how we were!!).

however lame and funny it may sound, this name aloo and matar has a very emotional significance for us.


and for sure the preparation of both of these that my mother prepares, is mouthwatering,slurp slurp.

therefore ,aloo matar 🙂
