Matar Ka Nimona recipe | Vegan, Easy to prepare, UP style Matar Ka Nimona recipe

Matar ka Nimona is a very Popular Dish from Uttar Pradesh . It’s a gravy dish , mainly prepared with Fresh Green Peas. Very simple and easy to make yet very very delicious.

Matar Ka Nimona tastes best with Fresh Green Peas , so mainly prepared in Winter season when fresh Green Peas are loaded in markets.

Though , Matar ka Nimona can be made with frozen green peas too.

I have made this very tasty Matar Ka Nimoma with IDHAYAM HARDIL KACHI GHANI MUSTARD OIL. The high smoking point of mustard oil makes it ideal for deep frying.
