What Is Aloo Bhuna Masala?
Aloo bhuna masala is a popular North Indian dish made with potatoes that are cooked in a flavourful curry. The term 'bhuna' refers to the process of slow cooking, which helps bring out the flavours of the dish. It is extremely wholesome and pairs well with roti, naan, or rice. You can relish aloo bhuna masala for lunch or dinner. While you can easily find this dish on a restaurant menu, nothing compares to the comfort of indulging in one that is made at a dhaba.
