  1. Growing up, I hated aloo gobi! But now it is one of my favourite things- especially with fresh, plain paranthas. My mother’s version is dry, but I am curious to try this version you’ve posted. Thank you for sharing!

  2. This recipe is really good. We had it as a side dish with your Tikka Masala, as good as any restaurant! I will be making more. Thanks
