No one is perfectly symmetrical. Most often one side is stronger. This may be due to skeletal or muscular imbalance. I have some sort of imbalance myself which I can't see in a mirror but I notice the bike shorts wear more on one side than the other but is otherwise barely noticeable.

A common drill to help smooth out pedaling is to leg with one leg at a time, taking your foot off the other pedal completely. Do this for minutes at a time for each side several days each week.
