ALOO GOBI

(Potato with Cauliflower)

 

This dish is very popular and traditionally a Punjabi dish. Potato and Cauliflower are vegetables that are not very appealing for the eyes and taste buds but we will cook them in such a way that the added spices and herbs will convert this totally carb dish into a cracker.

 

Not a difficult dish to cook and great filler so you will not go hungry. Can be served with rice, roti, naan or will make a nice filling for your baguette.
