Serves 3

Weekends means a feast for my husband. Although he gets the treat quite often, but greedy him :).. Last weekend, I was too tired after all the cleaning and dusting chores pending and didnt get quite the time for anything special. There was nothing else in the fridge left apart from some tomatoes. And some potatoes in the shelf... Even no onions or garlic :( :(.. I thought of getting the fuss over and make simple recipe of Jaini style Aalu Tamatar my Naani used to make. I planned to make a quick egg bhurji for my husband if he doesnt like it. But it was not required at the end...... Alls well if ends well ... !!
