Dum Alu with no Onion-Garlic

In India, on auspicious day of festivals many people do not eat Onion and Garlic's. When I got married, it became really tough job for me as my family do not eat onion and garlic in festivals. I use to think, it's not possible to make curry without onion, and so always preferred to make dry vegetables.

Few months back, I met a very dear girl - Madhuri, and in a small conversation, very casually she told me her mother's trick of making curries, as they don't eat garlic, and onion only on specific days. Believe me this trick really works. And I got to know, being non Onion- garlic eater, is not tough. And no one, ever gets to know, that it doesn't have Onion and Garlic, until and unless you tell them.
