Happy Chanuka!! Change up your holiday usual this year with these insanely flavorful Aloo Gobi Latkes with Tomato Chutney!
Aloo Gobi is a traditional Indian dish made up of potato, cauliflower, onion, and Indian spices. When I visit home in Seattle, my first stop on the way to and from the airport is always our kosher Indian restaurant and Aloo Gobi is my all time favorite thing to get there. When thinking about how I wanted to make Chanuka special this year, this flavor combo immediately came to mind. In one bite when all the flavors come together, you’re transported to another world! Happy Holidays to all!
