Aloo Sabji – No Onion No Garlic

During almost all festivals, we do not have onion and garlic. So we will have to come up with different varieties of spice mixtures in order to bring in the taste in curry and also to thicken the gravy.

This is one such potato curry that everybody loves in my family. It goes well with hot paratha or poori.

Read on for the recipe below.

Ingredients:

  1. Raw rice – 2 tsp
  2. Freshly grated coconut 2 tbsp or chunks of coconut pieces 10-12 pieces
