Aloo ke Jhol – Side dish for Roti/Poori

We are starting our regular marathon today 3 days a week. I have taken North Indian side dishes as my Week 1 theme. i immediately decided on what to make, first on the list was this  juicy aloo ke jhol. A simple potato subzi cooked with onion and tomatoes and simple spices and made a bit runny or soupy consistency. The curry sounds simple, but the taste is out of the world. So, when you are out of time and need something interesting on the Dinner table, then it is definitely this one.
