Aloo Gobhi is a deep fried vegetable recipe prepared in winter. This seasonal vegetable can be served as a main dish with roti or paratha. Cauliflower florets and potato slices and deep fried and further simmered with spices and tomatoes , you can also make this recipe without tomatoes but adding tomatoes give a perfect binding and prevents it from turning out to a dry dish.
