My family is a full fleged rice eater chapati is very rare at home. So my cooking most of the time limited to the south Indian curries. Recently I found out that my lil one loves gobi and aloo a lot . I prepared this simple dry sabji which came out very well and my lilttle one njoyed it with his curd rice.
