Carrot with Peas & Potatoes - (Aalo matar gajar)

Carrotssss--- Favorite of Big Bunny and hence popular among kids.. One of my favorite vegetables cooked with peas & potatoes. :) Carrots mostly available in red color in Pak but they may be orange in color. They are extremely nutritious & rich in anti-oxidants. They can be both served as sweet and savory. In salads, soups, halwa, kheer, juices and list goessss on :)  They are mostly served in winter, when it is the season of both peas & carrots. This dish goes well with roti/naan. This dish has a slight sweet taste due to the juiciness of carrots and peas. Although the sweetness is balanced by the potatoes added. 

Now lets move on to the recipe:


Carrots                                               1/2 kg (peeled & cubed)
