Everyone likes to make regular vegetables into something unique. Indian cuisine gives us so many opportunities to try our hand on combinations of the vegetables, dry fruits, spices etc. Today I mixed up two easily available items gobhi and makhane with other dry fruits and spices to make a Shahi Gobhi Makhana. A very simple dish which can go well with most tastes and a fancy name to win the accolades. The dish can be served with roti or naan or on the side to the rice.
