Sharing is caring!

Nawabi Aloo Masala is a rich creamy gravy that can be served with Naans or Rotis or even Jeera Rice and is an easy side dish to make.

Amma made this many weeks ago and we all liked it so much that we had to repeat it soon. This surely makes even a hurried weekday dinner special as this gravy is very creamy and rich.

This is for the Week 1 of BM#93 where I am doing I Ingredient 3 dishes with Potato as the main Ingredients.
