Dhaba Style Aloo Gobi ( Potato Cauliflower Curry )


When you have left nothing and unexpected guest arrives at doorstep then try this easy Dhaba style Aloo gobi and believe me your guest would lick their fingers. I usually make this on sudden arrival of guest at lunch and it's always a hit. Full of spices and aromatics make it really a special curry. Yesterday some guest arrived at our home without prior information.




 We have cauliflower, peas and some Cottage cheese left in the fridge. So we decided to make Dhaba style Aloo gobi and matar paneer . It's a wonderful thing about being Indian that all family members work like a team on any occasion. And the guest is like God to us. I have to prepare Aloo Gobi , mum choose desert and father in law (FIL) opted for Matar Paneer. I was thinking of some kind of fun and asked for a competition with FIL that whose dish is much liked. We all started doing our jobs , there were supposed to be 7 or 8 guest and 7 members in our family. So we had to prepare food for 15 people. After 3-4 hours of work our lunch was prepared and after serving I asked everyone to give their votes on currie. And :) guess what I won , I got 10 votes . I was so happy!! Since everybody in the family knows I am blogging about food but my Father in law is a great cook . So the competition was like quite tough. When I saw my FIL was adding cashew nuts and fox nuts in his curry, I was a bit hopeless that I might get loose this competition . But I won :) :) , of course two votes are from my husband and daughter but that too were given sincerely. It was a great day. I have given the amount and instructions for 4 serving but actually I made this for 15 people in a very big wok . I really did hard work and that was worth to hear nice comments. So let's start the recipe .Yum
