Hare matar ka chivda


If you have a UPite or bihari friend you will definitely know what is matar ka chivda and if not I’ll explain it you.

What is Matar ka chivda

Winter is the time when new poha or flat rice is harvested, this new poha or chivda tastes much sweeter than the old ones and blends perfect with fresh matar or green peas which also is a winter crop.Mix these two with a little frying and you have your matar ka chivda ready .

I would suggest everyone out there to eat whatever local n fresh is grown instead of packed food.In this way you’ll help your farmer.

Aloo kachaloo/Panch phodan aloo


Aloo kachaloo is Uttar pradesh’s one of the favourite winter delicacies,mostly eaten as breakfast or lunch.Basically this dish is made with (naya) new potatoes only but you can use whichever potato you have.What goes in making this, is simple panch phodan i.e mix of spices.This goes well with sugarcane juice.

Naya (new) potatoes are sweet in taste and don’t get mashed up while cooking ,so preferable naya aloo is used.

How to buy naya(new) aloo

Simple, the new potato when you scratch with your nails it’s skin comes out easily,it’s covered with dirt i.e mud,and they are found in abundance only in winter.Naya because it’s harvested in winter.

First you have to boil the potatoes and cut them into half,then head further

Let’s see what goes in making this
