We are in the middle of the week and work pressure has gripped us all. From waking up early in the morning to finishing household chores and leaving for work - days can be really hectic and stressful. This is when it gets important to unwind. And if you ask us, we say, food is the best way to release your stress. Chopping the vegetables, adding masala to the food and mixing things well can be therapeutic. Isn't it?

Here's one such quick and easy recipe that has left us craving for more. Hence, we thought of sharing it with you. It's called the aloo-gosht. Tender meat mixed with spices and flavourful potatoes; this dish finds its roots in a Rajasthani kitchen. For the unversed, a quintessential Rajasthani food is simple, spicy and immensely aromatic. And this home-style aloo-gosht is one of the best instances of the same.
Aloo-Gosht Recipe: How To Cook Aloo-Gosht:
Traditionally, Rajasthani recipes follow the slow-cooking process that makes the food extremely flavourful and aromatic. But, due to the lack of time, especially on a weekday, we prefer using a pressure cooker to shorten the cooking time.
