The Nawabi Aloo, as the name suggests, is a richly-textured potato curry, which goes great with chapatis , parathas or hot rice .

Tomatoes give this dish an interesting tang and milk gives it a rich taste, while a paste of onions, green chillies, ginger and spices gives it an awesome taste.

Although it sounds elaborate, this is actually a no-fuss recipe, which will be ready in a jiffy once you prepare the paste and boil the potatoes. Relish the Nawabi Aloo hot and fresh with rice or your favourite Indian bread.
