This recipe is a mouth-watering preparation of kand and potatoes in a base of curds, thickened with rajgira flour. The Aloo and Kand Rasawali Shaak gets its finger-licking flavour and appetizing aroma from green chilli paste and a tempering of cumin seeds. The best part is that you can have this shaak on a fasting day as well. Do not overcook the kand and potatoes as they might get mushy when continuing to cook with the other ingredients. If you are going to have this recipe later, then add some water and heat a little before serving.
