Aloo Tamatar

I came across this beautiful dish while am going through Alka's Sindhi Rasoi and immediately i got hooked to this droolworthy side dish which goes prefectly along with rotis since this dish goes for an easy breezy preparation..Yep the whole cooking process goes for pressure cooking and this dish sounds truly very interesting for me since i love easy cooking dishes..No doubt this aloo tamatar was our recent favourite and we love it..thanks a lot to Alka for sharing this droolworthy and delicious dish for our rotis, pooris and y not along with rice too..Sending to this month's T&T-SIndhiRasoi guest hosted by Ria, event by Lakshmi and to Any One Can Cook going in Pearl in the City....
