Spicy delicious no onion garlic matar chaat or green peas curry. Serve it as a side dish or chaat with green chutney, chopped onion, green chilli, tamarind chutney and a dash of lemon juice. Bhaja moshla or dry roasted mixed spices powder made it aromatic. Get the recipe here. A completely gluten free and vegan recipe. Fasting people can use rock salt.
You can also make it with onion garlic if you want. Just add 1 tablespoon more oil and fry 1 chopped onion and grind few garlic cloves with tomato, ginger and green chilli. But I love without onion garlic version more. You can make according to your choice.
