Aloo Gobhi ( a dry curry made with potatoes and cauliflower) is a simple a quick subzi. Many people (like me), don't like gobhi (cauliflower),but they do like aloo gobhi ki subzi.
Here is the recipe for Aloo Gobhi
1 medium size cauliflower
2 medium potatoes, cut into big (2 inch) squares.
2 small tomatoes, cut into small pieces (optional)
1 medium or 2 small onions, cut into small pieces
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon Garam masala,
2 teaspoon red chili powder,
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder,
1/2 teaspoon amchur powder (dry mango powder)--- optional
1 teaspoon coarsely ground Dhaniya (coriander) powder,
2 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon Jeera (cumin seeds)
2 small green chilies
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1 clove garlic, grated
a few strands of coriander (cilantro) cut into small pieces, leaves separated.
Cut the cauliflower florets (about 2 inch long), wash and drain. Heat oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds, let it crackle. Now add the onion and cook until they turn translucent. Now add green chilies, ginger, garlic and the cilantro strands. Let it cook for 2 minutes, then add tomatoes, salt, turmeric powder, garam masala, amchur powder,red chili powder and dhaniya powder. Cook until the tomatoes are done. Now add the cauliflower florets and the potato cubes and cook until both the vegetables are done. Stir occasionally, making sure not to break the florets.Add a little water while cooking if needed. Garnish with coriander leaves, and serve hot with paratha, naan or chapati.
