Punjabi Aloo Puri recipe |North indian aloo ki sabji

Vow my mouth starts watering at the mention of aloo poori combination.Now aloo sabji is made in various ways in India. It can be dry or gravy as per ones taste...

i have posted the maharashtrain style puri batata bhaji, up style aloo tamatar rasedar bhaji,up style aloo matar ka jhool ..

todays recipe is punjabi style aloo sabji made with onions & tomatos with spices in a pressure cooker for faster cooking.
I made this with pressure cooker, but you can easily make it in a sauce pan. 

This has become my favourite combo.this is eaten as breakfast in many north indian homes .You can make it on any festival occasion too.A really delicious aloo tamatar curry which goes great with poori or bhatura. Love the little spicy, tangy curry a lot. It is pretty simple to make as well.
