Aloo Gobi

In Hindi, aloo means potato and gobi can either be cabbage or cauliflower. This is a typical North Indian dish and in my opinion, the key to any good North Indian dish is the generous amount of cumin seeds and tomatoes. Do not stinge on either of these and your dishes will be yummy! This…

Garden Salad
