ABOUT Tandoori Aloo RECIPE

An Aloo/ potato can never go wrong !!! I strongly believe that even if the whole world finish, aloo will be the only thing surviving. There is no corner of this world (i know there isn't a corner actually) where aloo is not cooked. Such an humble vegetable, doesn't mind getting into with anything. One of my favorite Mughlai veg recipe is Tandoori Aloo . In fact the best Microwave recipe for Aloo. It has quite a couple of times rescued me when there is a sudden arrival of guests and there is scarcity of vegetables at home. Tandoori Aloo has always been a blockbuster in my home.
