Aloo Gobhi (Cauliflower curry)
As a kid, I was not very fond of this veggie. Every time my mom would cook it I would try to get away eating it. Replacing the curry (sabzi) with achar (pickle) or honey or sweetened yogurt. Oh, there were many ways I could avoid eating this. However, all of this kinda changed in 2003. This was the year when my paternal grandparents came over to United States to be with us for a period of 5 months. It was the bestest time ever! My grand father is no more, but my grand mother (Dadima) is still around and quite healthy as well, alhamdolillah!
When they visited us in 2003, I was a Junior in UMass Boston. My classes were early in the morning from 8 to 12 or 8-1. I would be home by 2 at most and be with them for the rest of the day. Everyone else (except younger brother, who was in school and would be home by 2:30) were working so they would be home much later, like 5 or 6 or sometimes at 7. I would normally get home at 2, make some fresh rotis and a quick veggie and me, younger brother and my grandparents would do our lunch together.
