Punjabi Dum Aloo Recipe From Priya Shiva


Dear All,
I am a full time mother busy running behind my little one. My greatest passion apart from family rests in cooking. Having lived in both south and north of India during my formative cooking years, and having tasted the best of both cuisines, my recipes are predominantly Indian. Today my blog holds 228 recipes posted one-a-day, nonstop for 228 days.

Punjabi Dum Aloo Recipe From Priya Shiva guest posts  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.  I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.
