Aloo Tamatar ki Sabzi is flavoured with mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, ginger and green chillies. I not only add curry leaves in the tempering but also garnish the dish with some curry leaves. To maximize the flavour of curry leaves, I break the leaves with hands, instead of cutting with a knife. Whenever I make aloo tamatar ki sabzi, we enjoy it with roti and rice for dinner and next morning I always have it with some fresh white bread.
