curry1I want to preface this by saying if your mama is actually from India, her Aloo Ghobi will taste better. This is my quick version of it. My kids thought it was great! As with all of my recipes, these are guidelines. I don’t really measure exactly and feel like it takes the fun out of cooking! Enjoy your own experimentation!

 1 onion, chopped
2 Tbsp minced ginger, garlic mix

1 or two potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 head chopped cauliflower
A cup of frozen peas

fresh coriander to garnish

Papa’s was probably when we went out for Indian food in Comox without the kids! But as a whole, the prize for family fun goes [...]
