The Kanda Aloo Sambhariya is a Gujarati delicacy, which is very different from the usual, run-of-the-mill subzis. A special procedure gives this dish a very unique taste and mouth-feel, although it is made only with potatoes, onions and common spices!

Here, the potatoes and onions are stuffed with a masala that comprises besan, coconut, sesame and other common ingredients, and then pressure cooked.

The stuffed and cooked veggies are further perked up with a traditional tempering and everyday spice powders, to get a super tasty dish.

You can enjoy this with Kadhi and Roti .
