Potatoes stuffed with potatoes! Well, yes, this scrumptious Bhojpuri Aloo features boiled potatoes packed with a mixture of mashed potatoes, lemon juice and spice powders, cooked with an intense mixture of milk, curds and besan perked up with an assortment of spices. The combination of dairy products gives this semi-dry subzi a rich and luscious flavour, which is complemented very well by the whole spices. You will love this flavourful and sumptuous preparation, served immediately with rotis and dal.
