Aloo Bhaji recipe
Recently I tasted Potato sabzi( Aloo Bhaji in Hindi) for poori in a North Indian thali. It was so tasty and a perfect side dish for Poori. Last week when I made Palak Poori, I wanted to try the Aloo Bhaji/Potato Sabzi I had in the hotel. Usually I make South Indian style Potato masala for Poori. But this is a completely different recipe from mine. Actually speaking, Aloo Bhaji can be made in various ways. Though its a North Indian recipe, there are many aloo bhaji versions like Bengali, Gujarati, Maharashtrian, Pakistani etc.Today I have shared a basic Potato gravy adding onion, tomato and masala powders. I am sure you can enjoy this sabzi with Poori & chapati as well if you like semi gravy type side dishes. Do try this easy and yummy aloo bhaji recipe/Potato sabzi for Poori and enjoy with your familyHappy.
