Aloo jhol is a curry which is mainly makes in uttar pradesh regions ,which is a best combination with pooris and also with one pot meal like veg pulao ,peas pulao.Among all vegetables kids loves simple potato fry which i make mostly atleast once in a week.
Jhol which means a thin gravy made with all blended spices and there are lots of variations are there in this curry. The gravy tastes best with roti or poori ,but I made with tomatoes and curd to form a gravy and it tasted so good.My kids always like to have north indian gravies in menu because of their spiceness they love to have as a side dish.
