Aloo Gobi Ki Tehri (potato And Cauliflower Yellow Rice)

Awadhi cuisine has loads of impact on the influence of foods in India. The Nawabs of lucknow had keen interest in food and they considered food as a means to satisfy their soul. Tehri is one of the recipes. Though Briyani is one of the most characteristic dish which laid the foundation for the identity of Indian cuisine all over the world, Tehri too did not lost its place from the history of awadhi cuisine.
Tehri is a kind of yellow rice flavored with garam massala and vegetables. The kind of vegetables being used can vary upon the season and availability of it. The spices too can be checked as per your diet.
Tehri did quite saved me number of times when i use to work in hotels where regular staying guest often complain of getting bored of the same briyanis and pulao being used in buffet. Therefore I always use it as an important tool to make such guests happy.
