Aloo Chole

Aloo Chole without Onion and Garlic ~ Garbanzo Bean Potato Curry

This is a vegetarian recipe without onion and garlic. One of my friend observes fasting for “Karthika Masam” (An auspicious month which starts the day after diwali ) during which he does pooja in the morning , fasts until he goes to temple in the evening and has only vegetarian light meals without onion and garlic. A common family friends of us planned for a weekend gathering and the lady had a challenge to cook a gravy curry without “onion and garlic” which goes with poori. I took it over and made “Aloo Chole” , replacing onion with boiled and mashed potato which gave it a thick gravy consistency .

Paneer Tikka Gravy

Paneer Tikka Masala Home Style

Paneer Tikka is prepared using paneer cubes, tri color vegetables like  pepper, tomato and onion marinated with yogurt and Indian spices and baked in tandoor oven. Alternatively at our homes, we bake them in conventional oven or gas grills. Paneer tikka can be served as a starter or snack.It is a must have in our barbecue parties. To make gravy curry, baked paneer tikka is cooked for a while in tomato onion base gravy and can be garnished with cream. In this recipe I did not use cream, instead I used nuts to get the rich creamy texture.
