Aloo Gobi Masala

Aloo Gobi Masala - South Indian Feast

by Sandhya,

I was wondering what to cook for dinner yesterday! I forgot to soak black gram thinking that I can manage with some leftover tomato chutney. But when my craving started for something really delicious and simple. I searched the fridge to find out some cauliflower. That’s when I decided to make aloo-gobi masala. This is the simplest side-dish for roti or chapati. It takes only 20-30 mins to prepare.
