Stuffed Aloo Curry


         Actually this recipe should be posted for Blog Hop Wednesday - Week 5. But last week i don't have my computer so i am not able to post it in time. I am sorry for that and i request Radhika and Vatsala to spare my absence. And i want to post my previous week's recipe along with this week schedule. But i want both to be a separate post. Hope you guys will accept this....
        As per week 5 blog hopping i was paired with Vatsala of Show and Tell. She runs a lovely space with delicious array of recipes mostly are authentic north Indian dishes. From that i chosen this unique recipe" Stuffed Aloo" . Usually we use potato as a stuffing for many recipes n choices but in this recipe she use paneer to stuff potatoes and after few process all together turned to a rich and flavorful stuffed Aloo curry. Very interesting right?? So i tried this recipe, we all loved it and sure will try this often. Her recipe looks so mild n rich but mine looks so hot n spicy may be due to the color of my chilli powder and also she might used onion paste to get smooth silky curry. But I don't bother about the color n texture taste was so yummy n here's the recipe...
