Aloo Gobi

This simple Punjabi recipe of Aloo Gobi should have been one of my earlier posts. I wonder why it took so long for me to post a recipe that is a regular at home and also the husband’s favorite. I think, things we make everyday or see everyday, often get overlooked. As they say… the grass is greener on the other side. The everyday dal sabzi gets a miss while the bagels and burgers gets a lot of attention.

Gobi Ka Paratha

Every one loves the traditional aloo ka Paratha and a lot of us thoroughly enjoy the occasional Gobi ka Paratha. The Punjabis in their ingenious way have invented this delectable combination that everyone can enjoy. Boiled and mashed aloo and Gobi are combined with the essential Punjabi masalas to create this wonderful Punjabi Paratha. Using whole wheat flour instead of plain flour or Maida makes this Parathas healthy and tasty.
