Paleo Friendly Indian Food – Aloo Gobi – without the potatoes! Instead… Chicken!

One of my favorite dishes at our local little hole in the wall Indian restaurant was Aloo Gobi. I would order it every… single… time we ate there. In case you’ve never had it, it’s typically made with potatoes and cauliflower and some other yummy Indian ingredients that I won’t pretend to understand. :)

When I started to eat clean and in line with the Paleo lifestyle last year, I started craving Aloo Gobi instantly, but was saddened because I was trying to remove potatoes from my diet (or at least eat them less often),while also trying to find as many Paleo-friendly meal choices I could get in my arsinal for success.

Soooooo…. what did I do? I adapted an Aloo Gobi recipe! Take away the potatoes and add CHICKEN! Simple! And OH SO DELICIOUS!

Make it! Try it for yourself! And let me know what you think! Again, I like to make a batch of this stuff and eat it a few times that week for lunch. It heats up perfectly and it’s actually even better the second and third time when the flavors have all melded together!
