My grand mother would make this Aaloo Chilka recipe for me every time I would visit her. A highly recommended dish, this recipe is also very suitable for kids. Aloo Chilka goes well with poori - both for lunch and dinner, but it can also be eaten with paratha. This recipe reminds me of the sweet memories of my childhood. A must try!"
