, , No Comments

Aloo has always been a hot favorite among most Indian dishes. Not only does it add volume to the dishes, it also complements with most of the Indian vegetables and style of cooking. I had a litre of fresh milk that broke apart. I had no other option but to make paneer (cottage cheese) out of it. Today it was time for Paneer bhurjiwale aloo.
