Gobi Aloo is an Indian style cauliflower and potato dish that’s extremely comforting and worthy of being considered vegan comfort food! Chana Masala is an Indian Chickpea Stew and also extremely comforting! This recipe had a wonderfully unique, Christmas-y taste to it, probably from the cinnamon and cloves.
