Aloo Gobi Masala(Restaurant Style)

   I learnt this recipe from my neighbor cum friend in salem.She was a Catering student.This curry will taste exactly  like what we get from restaurants,particularly its like the same taste from Saravana Grandstyle Salem.
This curry needs more oil and more patience.It will take about 1hr to cook,started to cook by6.30pm and its 7.35pm when i turn of the stove.U have to cook in low or medium heat.


Boiled Potatoes/Aloo    4-5 no.s(hard boiled without skin)Gobi/Cauliflower    1/2 (cut in to medium size florets)Onion     2 big size(grind to smooth paste) (yellow or white onion is gud)Tomato   4no.s (grind in to fine paste ) or 3/4th of 8oz can Green chillies    2no.s(finely chopped)Ginger   Small piece(cut in length wise ,see picture)Fennel seeds  1/2 tspChilli powder   1and 1/2 tspGaram masala or MTR channa masala powder  1 tspCurry masala powder   1/2tspSugar    1/4 tspOrange food color   a small pinchCoriander leaves    7-9strings (finely chopped)Salt    as  neededOil   200ml

Use non-stick kadai or vessel to cook this masala..Heat oil in an available vessel ,add fennel seeds after it splutter,add grounded onion paste.Fry in low heat ,fry them nicely till the raw smell from onion goes.When it get completley fried up,u vl able to smell the onions and fennel seeds like from the onion pakoras Onion will absorb all oil to fry well.Then add the tomato paste,green chillies and ginger ,fry well.Cook covered with stirring for every 1-2 minutes.Fry until oil oozes out from the masala.Then add all dry powders saute for 2 minutes and add about 1/2 cup of water.Let them boil for about 5-7 minutes .Now add hard boiled potatoes and cauliflower mix well .Cook for another 3-4 minutes with lid closed.Add some chopped coriander leaves ,saute well simmer for 2minutes and remove from the stove.Flavorful,colorful and mouth watering aloo Gobi masala is ready.Serve hot with chapathi or puri or with Naan.

As i told above,u need more patience to cook this curry,take much care to fry onions,if it get burnt at the bottom ,then ur curry vl  have bitterness taste.The entire taste depends on the onion-tomato fry.Adjust spices to ur taste and to the quantity .
