Matar Usal Recipe (Hindi)

Usal is a classic Marathi dish that consists of a main ingredient – like sprouts, moth beans, etc – stir fried with mild spices, curry leaves and chopped veggies of choice with a slight curry. The usal makes for a great snack as it is light and can be prepared without much hassle.

The green peas usal or matar usal, as the name suggest, is a stir fried green pea dish made with soaked peas. Again, it is an excellent snack, but owing to its green pea (a.k.a. vegetable) factor, it can also be had as a side with some dal and roti or even lightly buttered pav. Follow this recipe to whip up a delicious matar usal. The following recipe is for a very lightly gravy-ed usal. You can adjust the consistency as per your taste by adding more water.
