A lazy weekend after five days of bone breaking office weekdays, feels like a pure bliss. The work has taken its toll and both of us are having new learnings and crucial product releases this quarter.

The week’s tiredness was compelling me to cook one main course meal instead of a proper Indian Thali. It needed to be spicy, nutrients-loaded and heavy enough to erase late morning brunch’s hunger. While flipping through TV channels, I landed in Delhi’s delight, featuring the great “Paranthe-wale-Gali”. My hunger reached its zenith and in the thought of paratha’s I was literally salivating.

I rushed to the refrigerator, grabbed a cauliflower and some potatoes to make Aloo-Gobi Paratha.
Here goes the Aloo Gobi Paratha recipe:
Ingredients:
  1. Potato – 1 medium sized
  2. Cauliflower – 1/4 big sized
  3. Onion – 1 medium sized
  4. Garlic – 2 – 3 large cloves, finely chopped
  5. Ginger – 1 cm long, finely grated
  6. Green chilies – 1 finely chopped

  9. Cumin Powder – 1/2 tsp
  10. Coriander Powder – 1/2 tsp
  11. Wheat Flour – 2 cups
