SANJEEV KAPOOR’S JEERA ALOO

3Hi.  Have you ever wondered about small things that go missing all of a sudden?  Like that hair clip or one cute ear ring or favorite handkerchief. Pen/pencil is also lost a lot. Do you ever wonder where do these things go? Isn’t it strange that somethings just mysteriously go missing?

And maybe years later you find your clip far behind sofa. That handkerchief tucked under layers of clothing. Missing ear ring will be found near a window sill. Does that happen to you?

I love jeera aloo and have always wanted to try it. This is a version of Sanjeev Kapoor recipe. I have just tweaked the style of preparation. Do try it. I am sure you will treasure this recipe.
