Aloo gobi (spiced potatoes and cauliflower) is one of my favourite Indian dishes. Serve this as a main meal, or as part of a delicious dinner spread.
You should be able to find frozen chapatis to serve this Aloo gobi with in the frozen section of your supermarket. Check out my recipe for raita here. To make this into a more substantial meal, serve a fried egg on top for anyone who wants one.
