HYDERABADI ALOO – Recipe No. 23

When there are no green vegetables at our home and there is no desire to bring it from the market then only one thing comes to our mind and that is Potatoes. But at the same time, the other thing which also comes to our mind is that what to make with them.

So this time I thought of making something different and this recipe came to my mind. Main ingredients of this recipe are curd, cream and milk. Not too many spices are added in this other than salt and Garam Masala. The making of this recipe is a little time consuming process but it tastes delicious.

This is my mother’s recipes (by the way she is a very good cook) and this time inspired by her I had made it and it tasted very delicious and she also liked it
