While growing up I had a neighbour friend who hailed from Uttar Pradesh and like all kids and teenagers do, I used to enjoy eating food in his house more than mine. There used to be a joy in ducking mum and eating that Sunday lunch at his house and a lot of that Sunday lunch used to feature a humble tehri and curd.
In the first look, Aloo Mutter Gobhi ki tehri can be mistaken and passed off as a pulao and it may as well be a form of it but there is a humbleness and flavour to it which has so much more character to it or may be it’s just my memories. Nostalgia has a strong way of playing with food and taste buds at times.
Last time when I went back to Delhi, I asked my friends mom to teach me how to make this. It was so much fun giggling over memories and stuff we used to do when we were kids, Aunty told us reminded me of many things we used to do back then most of us not to be mentioned on the blog in public. I had the most beautiful day that afternoon, going down memory lane and learning to cook from her, the Aloo Mutter & Gobhi ki Tehri along with a couple of more recipes. Sharing them here with you, since love needs to be shared isn’t it?
