Yes, the Holi weekend is finally here. As Holi this year falls on Monday (March 29, 2021), we get to enjoy an extended weekend. While some of us are heading off for short vacations, others are staying back at home to relax and spend quality time with family and friends. If you choose to do the latter, food has a major role to play. Many of us will have guests coming over, meaning we need to prepare various delicious meals in the coming three days. Holi meal spread generally includes dahi bhalla, dal kachori, chana masala, puri, gujiya, thandai et al, but we always have rooms to experiment and put up a great show.
Considering this, we found a unique gobi recipe for you that can be paired with paratha, roti and naan; or you can stuff it in dough and make stuffed paratha or puri with it. It is called gobi bhurji. Besides a pool of flavourful spices, what makes this dish tastier is its wonderfully roasted flavour. Yes, you need to roast it before making the bhurji.
This unique recipe is shared by food vlogger Alpa Modi on her YouTube channel, ‘Something’s Cooking With Alpa’. Let’s take a look.
