Hare Matar Ki Ghugni is a delicious recipe made with Green Peas. Matar Ki Ghugni is perfect and healthy breakfast recipe to have.   

It is a staple winter diet in old cities like Banaras, Lucknow and Allahabad. This is an exciting Tea Time Snack that one would love to indulge in as it hardly takes any efforts to make if you have some ‘Boiled’ peas in hand.

Besides being a Zero Oil Recipe, Hare Matar Ki Ghugni makes a great snack or side dish for those fitness freaks who love to snack on healthy and seasonal diet. So whether to have it as a snack or team with regular meals, the choice is yours.

Though you can also cook this Gughni with Frozen Peas, but the ones made with fresh seasonal batch tastes ultimate in all perspectives.

During winters, we crave for Peas or Hari Matar in every single meal be it in the form of Snack or Sookhi Sabzi or Curry. For instance Aloo Matar Gravy is in our regular diet and has to be cooked atleast once in a week, but you can also make Aloo Matar Curry Without Onion Garlic in pressure cooker in no time. Gajar Matar Ki Sabzi makes an excellent side dish with rotis & paranthas and who can say NO to Matar Paneer Curry, Kaju Matar Masala or Aloo Gobhi Matar Adraki with Puris and Kachoris?

Enjoy Winter Snacking With Healthy Matar Ki Ghugni -

During winters you just need to sit wrapped in a cozy blanket and enjoy Matar Ki Ghugni with Masala Chai or a Frothy cup of Cappuccino.

Matar Ki Ghugni is always served ‘Hot’. There is no point in serving a bowl of Ghugni in winters if it is at room temperature. Also before serving, do not miss to serve along some Sev or Farsaan as this combination of soft peas with crunchy sev is always a hit and this is how it is served in old cities like Banaras, Allahabad and Lucknow.

This is a No Onion Garlic Recipe, but if prefer you can top it with some chopped onion or spring onions.
