Aloo Gobi

This is a really simple recipe which I had been ignoring for ages. Recently, I decided to prepare it.I loved its taste and simplicity so much that I keep preparing it regularly now.

For any new recipe, I generally check it out with Sanjeev Kapoor’s site or at tarla dalal’s site. Then the other food bloggers. And, this one is picked for Sanjeev kapoor’s site. Tweaked only a wee bit to get this yummy dish!

Once cooked, add turmeric powder and chilli powder. Mix them well. Then add curds, give it a good toss and cook it closed for another min. There is no watery residue of curds left.
