About the Aloo Gobi Sabzi recipe

But coming back to this recipe..
This one is going to be part of the Desi Sabzis (or Desi Vegetables) which form a major part of diet of the South Asian Continent (especially Indians). I have grown up eating them and continue to love the various vegetable combinations. I must confess that often I tend to eat more sabzis or curries than the rice OR roti themselves.. but hey I love it and I am sticking to this!

Cauliflower is one of my favorites as it has a unique taste and texture. Full of fibre it is really good for us. Combine it with Potato and add a dash of peas and it gets amazing! This sukhi sabzi (or dry vegetable) as it is called can go well with roti(Indian breads). However you can also extend it by adding some gravy OR yogurt and voila you have a new taste and a new flavor! Thats what I love about this recipe.. One base multiple possibilities!!

This one is made by Bhavana Bharot. You can find more about her here .

Shelf Life & Storage

As this is a dry sabzi, it has a good shelf life.. Store it in airtight containers and you can consume it up to 5 days..
I personally prefer cooking whats needed as I love to consume this sabzi fresh …but if required freeze it and store in small batches . Thaw and consume only what is needed.. In this way you can also consume it for a longer period.

Hope you enjoy this!! Do let grobit know how you liked it!
And feel free to experiment and adapt the recipe.. and if you discover an interesting combination share witrh grobit!
