Aloo Gobhi

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.

Hey Nehal. I have been following your blog but never left a comment. Your subzi looks yummy. This is exactly how I make it too. Thanks for the lovely recipe.

I like the first picture. It would be nice if you put the allo ghobi in a small plate and the background you add a cup of tea and stack of plates. Just a suggestion. I like aloo ghobi. I made it several times. Btw, did Pennstate send you a postcard to ask you to call a certain phone numbers to verify your data for the new alumni book? I submitted our picture (you, me and Chan) to the alumni book.

Thanks Roassy. I am still learning to be an expert like you in taking good pictures. Any suggestions are welcomed:)
About PennState, I did get post card many times, but I never returned it to them (or fogot):). I will see if I can do that online, and thanks for submitting our picture.

This looks great and I will definitely try this recipe.

I have tried making Bombay Aloo but wondered if you had a really authentic recipe? Is it the same as this just without the cauliflower?

Thanks Mandy.
Actually, in Bombay, there is no dish called Bombay aloo:), but there are many variations of Potato curry in Bombay. Please see these links. There are many more authentic Bombay recipes here:). (With Gravy) (Dry Version)
