Aloo Tamatar Ka Jhol and Mandua Ki Roti -Uttarakhand Special

After a visit to UP,our next visit is to a pilgrimage state Uttarakhand,formerly Uttranchal.This state is referred as 'Land of Gods' and this is the 27 th state carved out of Himalayan and adjoining northwestern districts of UttarPradesh.
The state is divided into two divisions Gharwal and Kumaon and the Hindu pilgrimage such as Kedarinath,Badrinath,Rishikesh are the most important places of this state.
The cuisine of Uttranchal is simple yet healthy and nutritious,mostof the Uttranchal residents prefer vegetarian meal.
Coming to the recipe,the aloo tamatar ka jhol is a simple potato curry tastes awesome with the mandua ki roti,a flat bread with finger millet flour.
As finger millet is a gluten free grain ,its bit difficult to roll into a thin roti,this roti tastes great when it is served right from the pan.Now off to the recipes.........................
