Recipe Of The Week – Dahi Ke Aaloo


This is an ancestral recipe from my Mum’s family and an all time favorite….specially in summer… My mum used to make it with Potatoes, Carrots, Okra (bhindi -that is fried and added to the gravy) and even Eggs (boiled of course). It is super easy and yummy veggie meal.
