One day I was left with only potatoes in my kitchen and I was thinking what to make for lunch. Though I know many other recipes to make, using potato but I wanted to make something creative and then suddenly I noticed hing in my kitchen drawer and that is when I decide to make Hing wale Aloo ki sabzi.
So I prepared this sabzi and got my hubby to taste it and guess what, I heard a wow from him.
