Roasted Aloo Gobi

Aloo Gobi is one of my favourite curries. Not just because it tastes amazing but because it’s one of those all in one dishes that you don’t need any accompaniments with. This recipe makes a great substitution for your usual take away with all the flavour of India, but less than a third of the calories of your regular choices.  At only 322 calories a portion, you could also serve it  as a side to some pieces tandoori chicken,  or you could even add some diced chicken to the recipe, if you have enough calories to spare.
