Deghi Aloo Gosht

Classic comfort food from the city of Peshawar ,Aloo gusht  .
And there are many variation of this classic dish and the best one is this simple recipe which I create it many years back and I was inspire from my mom Aloo gusht curry .simple elegant curry stand out in many other vegetarian and on vegetarian curries.
As a child growing up in many sisters and brothers I always love the way my mom cook and share food with others .she never cook one dish at any time at least 2 to three dishes  at lunch and we never hade a left over  because she have to shares with poor and people those who work in our house a share of  other people who live near to our house then she start cooking for dinner from the scratch .

I remember as child one day went with my servant to her  home  as we enter all her sisters and brothers and her mom was waiting for the food which my mother give to her a big bowl of Aloo gusht  and 3 large size pesheweri naan  they were so happy  her mom said its like eid for them .
This curry  usually made with pesheweri curry powder  which hard to find so I use all the spices together which just work perfect.
