I have to admit that Aloo Gobi (Potatoes and Cauliflower) is not my favorite dish. I never grew up requesting it for dinner. Though, every formal dinner there it was. My mom would always have it as a staple on the table and guests would love it. My husband is obsessed with it and so I figured I need to include it in my cookbook.
When I told my father I could make AG in the crock pot he didn't believe me. Actually he argued against the logic of it. (He's an engineer by trade but would have made a great lawyer!)
This time though I out smarted him. It can be done and the results are wildly delish. You can see for yourself the really cool food blog eataduckimust. Check out their pictures and what they have to say about the "deuling" dishes.
Aloo Gobi without tomatoes (my version) and Aloo Gobi with tomatoes (my dad's version).
Soo...all you taste testers, what's cooking this week? Here's the list. All you have to do is post on here what you want to eat. Coordinate a pick up by text/cell/email and come over with your containers. Dinner's that simple and easy. Just remember you've got 2-3 days to get your feedback on here - it all really does help. All of you have been great with the feedback and Alice and Jared you get the award so far!
