Aloo Gobi (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)


AlooAloo Gobi  is usually made with white potatoes. I don’t typically don’t have white potatoes at home because I don’t buy them often. My version of Gobi Aloo includes sweet potatoes and peas. I love Indian spices and Indian food. If you haven’t had Indian food before, you are missing out! To me, Indian spices are unique and make my taste buds dance. I went out on a whim by using sweet potatoes, instead of white, and it paid off. I hope you enjoy this make over!
