ALOO GOBI KI SABJI/ POTATO AND CAULIFLOWER CURRY/ ALOO GOBI GRAVY



Hi friends I am back with a recipe which is made all over India!! But the beauty lies in the number of ways it’s made. A simple dish made with two common vegetables finds its way in all the households in all the regions and is loved by almost all the people. I am talking about none other than Aloo Gobi ki sabji!! This dish is made in almost all the parts of India but with a local twist. Being a foodie I love all the variants of this recipe but the one which holds a special place for me the Punjabi Aloo Gobi as it reminds me of my school days n the times I have enjoyed this delicacy from my best friend’s Tiffin. So today I have tried my hand on Punjabi Aloo Gobi curry style and down below is the recipe for you all. Hope you all will enjoy it. Happy cooking!
