The name of the dish in Hindi is potato and cauliflower.
Aloo= potato, Gobi= cauliflower.

The taste of aloo gobi is so delicious and I would love to share the recipe and try it at home, of course, nothing compares to a flight to India and having the original dish to the sounds of Indian music in the background, so let’s start!

If you like it spicy, you can add a few slices of green chili.
For maximum experience, I suggest playing good Indian music in the background while cooking.
