Weekdays are all about finishing work and completing assignments; we barely get time to take a breath, let alone make something elaborate and delicious! We wish to indulge in yummy food like the tandoori flavour of paneer tikka or tandoori aloo but it is impractical and unhealthy to order food every day. While our go-to dish is something as simple as aloo ki sabzi or baigan ka bharta, it can get mundane to eat these dishes every day. So, if you are bored of eating the same old aloo ki sabzi, this recipe gives the mundane potatoes a spicy twist and it is called tandoori aloo bharta!
Tandoori aloo bharta is the combination of tandoori aloo, aloo ki sabzi and baigan ka bharta. The potatoes are baked tandoori-style and then cooked in the signature spicy, tomato-onion bharta masala. This delicious sabzi can be served for lunch and dinner, you can pair it with your daily dal-chawal or just eat it with tandoori rotis.
