Aloo Gobi is one of my favorite Indian dishes. My youngest daughter and I pretty much always order this. She is lucky enough to live close to an Indian restaurant and I’m pretty sure she’s taunting me each time she orders Door Dash and it shows up in my notification. Since I don’t have a restaurant close to me, I thought it might be worth giving it a go to make it on my own. Here is a traditional recipe I’ve found. I’ve got to order a few ingredients and then I can give it a try. Wish me luck!
