Aloo Gobi

Aloo Gobi Masala is my favourite, when i go to restaurant's, But never intended to try it at home till i saw Meeta's Punjabi Aloo Gobi. i took the key ingredients from her recipe and went ahead with my own way of making curry. it came out So Good. we liked it a lot. Thou its a dry one, you can make it in gravy form by adding Fresh Cream in the last. Iam sure this recipe will amaze you all, as it amazed us.
