ALOO GOBI – INDIAN POTATO & CAULIFLOWER by Mamunche

Aloo Gobi is a traditional vegetarian dish of the Indian cuisine. Its name literally means potatoes with cauliflower, Aloo means potatoes, and Gobi – cauliflower. This dish is extremely popular and is prepared traditionally in every Indian home.

This recipe is a traditional homemade recipe and differs from the Alu Gobi which you will get in an Indian restaurant. In a restaurant the sauce (gravy) is usually cooked separately and the vegetables are fried and then served dipped in the sauce. I chose to add in my blog the traditional home-cooked version as I cook it at home too. It is much healthier but just as tasty as the restaurant dish.

Aloo Gobi is traditionally served with boiled basmati (or jasmine) rice or Indian naan bread. I guarantee that you can have this dish even without bread or side of rice and it will still satisfy you perfectly.

This dish is full of aroma and it’s slightly spicy. Ayurvedic spices are used which are typical for the Indian cuisine and are extremely healthy.Some of the spices you might have at hame and others you can buy. For example Garam Masala * is a mix that you can buy but also make yourself.

I have long been passionate about Ayurvedic and Indian Food and I have most of the spices on hand. I brought my Garam Masala mix from Sri Lanka but I have decided to make the spice mix myself once I used what I already have.

Instructions
  1. Peel the potatoes and cut in cubes (2-3 cm). Chop the onion, ginger, garlic and green chilli.
  2. Chop the cauliflower in florets and put aside.
  3. Heat some oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds. After 30 seconds add the garlic and ginger and sauté for another 30 seconds.
  4. Add the onion and saute until it gets transparent.
  5. Add the potatoes then cover with a lid and turn the heat down. Stir well every few minutes and if the bottom of the pan looks to dry just add a bit of water. Cook until the pototoes are half cooked.
  6. Add the cauliflower, the spices and salt and stir well. Let it cook for few minutes and add the tomatoes.
  7. The cauliflower should get tender quickly so be careful not to overcook it. The ideal texture of this dish should be slightly soft potatoes and kind of still crunchy cauliflower.
  8. Garnish with some frsh coriander and serve with cooked rice or bread.
