This recipe is about Aloo (Potatoes) and Gobi (Cauliflower). When I was staying in Delhi (not so long), I had a chance to live with a north Indian family. Aunty who was my neighbor used to cook very tasty and traditional North-Indian Aloo Gobi. I was luckily enough to had it for the first time. After that i had another chance to have tasty alu Gobi on-the-air. First time when I travelled to India by Indian airlines, they provided a spicy mixture of vegetable made of potatoes and cauliflower. I liked it so much. So, here comes the recipe of aloo Gobi, that i never miss to cook at least one time a week. I will keep the recipe preparation as simple as possible, so that it will be easier for beginners of Indian cooking.
