I've always been intimidated by Indian cooking. I love to eat it, but was afraid to cook it. When the opportunity arose to learn to cook my favorite dish from a real Indian cook, I jumped at the chance! My team at work in HR at Autodesk came along, too. What a great way to come together as a team; cooking and eating a meal together. As you'll see cooking Aloo Gobi is actually pretty darn easy!
