Mathura Ke Dubki Wale Aloo

Mathura Ke Dubki Wale Aloo

This recipe is very easy to make and requires very less oil. Its a no onion no garlic recipe that goes well with both puris and kachoris. The curry is usually very thin and runny but a bit spicy. Prefer to cook this curry in an iron kadhai as it imparts a nice dark colour to the curry. This curry is good for digestion also as it  is prepared with so many spices and fresh herbs.
