Aloo matar vadi ki Tehri is a Spicy rice pilaf made with potato,peas and lentil nuggets-from North India
Tehri / Tahiri /Tahari is a very popular Pulao/Pilaf in Pakistan and India especially in the states of Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. In Punjab this is often refered as matar and vadi wale chawal.
Home made moong dal nuggets(vadi)are used to make this pulao,but now these vadi’s are easily available in the market.
I have posted the recipe to make moong daal vadi’s here .I have used my mom made vadi’s to make this aloo matar ki tehri,she makes very tiny sized vadis’, if moong daal vadis'(nuggets) are not available then you can use punjabi urad daal vadi’s (Amritsari vadi’s) crush them into small pieces,as they are very big in size.
Traditionally potato,fresh peas ,moong daal vadi’s and some basic spice are used to make this aloo matar ki tehri ,but you can also add some cauliflower and carrots to make it more colourful and healthy.this is usally served with plain yoghurt or spinach raita or lauki raita.
