Aloo Gobhi

I was always picky about eating vegetables, so my mum used to make Aloo-Gobhi in pure Gujju way (dry/curry) mostly 2-3 times in a week. I always loved the dry version of it! Here is a try to give a li’l twist to my mum’s recipe… 

This dish is parboiled and then baked/pan-roasted in oil with traditional indian spices. 
This dry and crispy “Aloo Gobhi” can be paired with lemon rice or soft bhakhri! All-time favorite, very delicious, healthy and hearty meal…
