What’s your favourite Indian food? Personally, it’s a tough decision for me. I love Aloo Gobi, Palak Paneer, Mango Chicken, Naan, Pani Puri, Butter Chicken… man, the list goes on and on! However, it seems like a lot of my readers are fans of Aloo Gobi. So this recipe is specially made for you! Click for IG cooking video highlight of this delicious dish.
My family and I frequent an Indian restaurant in town for their delicious food every now and then. But my little ones have a hard time with the spices (spicy) even after the chef tried to tone it down. Making it at home allows me to control the spice level to suit my girls’ tolerance. This recipe allows you to omit the chillis but still get the warm flavours of the dish. Add or reduce as much of the chilli as you wish.
It’s no surprise why a lot of you love this dish. Tender cauliflower & potatoes engulfed in warm savoury spices. It’s a flavour explosion with every single bite. It’s a great dish to pair with basmati rice or saffron rice! Click for IG cooking video highlight of this delicious dish. Here’s the recipe.
