Aloo Gobi recipe
  No onion no garlic Aloo Gobi recipe, a popular combo of potato and cauliflower pairs well with roti and rice too. I tried this no onion no garlic aloo gobi recipe, when i had guests during navaratri, and one of the friend in the group, does not take onion or garlic. I made rotis ,dal and this aloo gobi without adding onion, instead i added a bunch of coriander leaves and cumin seeds. Our guests enjoyed this a lot and my daughter who always hates onions in curries loved this version a lot.
