Gaajar matar gobhi ki sabzi

Gaajar matar gobhi ki sabzi (carrots, peas and cauliflower) is a wonderful combo of three winter vegetables. All vegetable vendors bring fresh red carrots, peas and cauliflower in abundance during winter. Though these three vegetables can be cooked separately, ( Aaloo  Gobhi ki sabzi  ) as a combo, gaajar, matar aur gobhi creates a delicious vegetable dish. The sweet taste of carrots and peas is balanced by adding ginger, green chilies and garam masala. Kids also love this vegetable as they find their favourite peas here.

Sometimes the taste of gaajar matar gobhi ki sabzi is ruined if peas are not of good quality. They remain hard until carrots and cauliflower are completely cooked. To avoid this issue, I prefer buying very soft peas. But in case you have hard peas, then before cooking them, boil them in a pressure cooker for just one pressure. Now peas will be completely cooked along with carrots and cauliflower. Be careful, don’t boil peas for more than one whistle, otherwise, they will become mushy by the time all the vegetables are cooked.

  1. This sabzi looks so beautiful, colourful & appetizing. I have not tried this combo of veggies before, thanks for sharing a wonderful winter recipe.

      1. We buy groceries once a week, as we don’t have so much storage place. I prepare a list and then we go through the supermarket after what is on the list. That is quick and cheaper than the leisurely way … 😉 😀 (Where one gets tempted of all kinds of things …)

      2. Yes, I still don’t dare to go in the store. Though last one week I went out in auto to drop Apoorva for college. They made it compulsory to come and write exams. Very nearby her college there is one baking supply store. Just couldn’t resist and last day I did some shopping there . But for vegetables now I go to the shop. It is right opposite to our apartment.

  2. Nice combination of veggies for a sabji , I have tried this but by adding potatoes as well. This looks very delicious and a good one to try for a change.

    1. Thanks a lot Nisha ☺️
      When there are guests, I also add potatoes to increase the quantity. Otherwise just an attempt to develop the habit of having vegetables without potatoes.

    1. Thanks a lot Zeba☺️
      I love the flavor of dil. Have tasted your combo at my maternal uncle’s house in Agra. But somehow mom always cooked these three veggies together. So you know… tradition follows ☺️

  3. A popular winter sabzi. The variation that we enjoy is devoid of Gobhi. As you know, Jaipur gets the best of Matar one can find in India. A reason why even these two makes for a great sabzi

    1. You bet arv! I miss so much Jaipur ki kachhi hari-hari matar. Cheelte Cheelte hi bahut saari kha jaya karte the!!
      Have you ever tried matar ke chilke ko cheel kar khana…

      1. Oh yes! ridge gourd , bottle gourd and pea’s peels, have cooked all as sabzi. My cousin used to say, you eat yours and cow’s share also😂

      2. LoL…. In many regions of Rajasthan due to scarcity of water and availability of fresh vegetables, improvisation was necessary. Another example would be Muli ke patte ki sabzi. I’m not sure if you have tried it.

      3. Yes, we call it mooli ki bhujiya. Sarso, mooli, gajar, palak, methi ke patto ko mila kar saag banaya jaata hai. Have you tasted it? Very popular in Jaipur and it is called ‘patto ka aalan’

      4. I was planning to post but getting carrot leaves is difficult in our area. Bathua also is not available here. Still scared to travel and buy as people are roaming mask free every where.
        Probably next year…

      5. Chickpet is too far. All North Indian vegetables are available in Jai Nagar BDA complex but it is under renovation and this place is as crowded as our old Jaipur street shopping areas.

  4. It is awesome, a delicious nutritious vegetable, I like the combination of carrots, peas and cauliflower. Very good recipe ma’am, congratulations to you🙏👌👌😊🤗🌻🎆⚘

  5. This is extremely delicious! Wonderful carrots, peas and cauliflower, and all the spices! I followed your recipe and eat it with white rice. Love it.
