Sem Matar Aloo
Sem (or Surti papdi/ Valor papdi) is also known as Lima beans in English. These annual beans are from the Fabaceae family (similar to green/French beans and peas). Sem is rich in dietary fibers, vitamin A, C and K . It is also considered as a medicinal plant. There is a variety of dishes made with Sem. Here I am presenting a very delicious and healthy dry veg preparation from North India.....
- Sem about 300 gms
- Potato 1 medium
- Green peas ½ cup
- Oil 2 tbsp
- Cumin seeds 1 tsp
- Asafoetida 2 pinches
- Turmeric powder ½ tsp
- Red chili powder ½ tsp
- Coriander powder 1½ tsp
- Salt 1 tsp or to taste
- Dry mango powder (Amchoor powder) ½ tsp
- A little bit of garam masala
Method of preparation:
- Remove the pointed sides and strings of the sem and wash them thoroughly. Pat dry the sem on the kitchen towel.
- Now cut the sem into small pieces.
- Peel, wash, and cut the poatoes into half inch pieces .
- In a wok, heat oil on medium heat. Add cumin seeds . When seeds change the color add asafoetida. Now add turmeric powder, sem, and potatoes. Mix well and fry for a couple of minutes. Add salt, red chili powder, and coriander powder. Mix well. Fry for a minute.
- Cover the lid and cook the vegetables on low heat until veggies are about half way cooked.
- Add green peas and cook until sem, peas and potatoes are tender (Takes about 5 minutes).
- Add dry mango powder (amchoor powder) and a little bit of garam masala. Fry the vegetables for a couple of minutes.
- Delicious and nutritious sem matar aloo is ready to serve. Serve with Roti or Plain Paratha.
Some Tips/ Suggestions:
- I usually get only frozen green peas which are tender, that is why I have added peas in step 6. In case you are using fresh green peas, add them with sem and aloo.
