Aloo Gobi (potato & cauliflower dish) is one of the most famous dishes of Indian cuisine & there must be barely anyone who has tasted this dish & not fallen for it.

Since a long time I was contemplating which version of Aloo Gobi should I post first (I cook this dish in few different styles). Finally I went with the most-liked-but-lesser-made version. Lesser because this dish calls for frying your Aloo & Gobi before mixing it with the Masala (dry gravy). Due to the extra oil content (than usual), despit

Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
2-3 medium sized Aloo (potato) cut into wedges

1 Gobi (cauliflower) cut in big chunky pieces.

1 medium sized onion cut into julienne

2 tomatoes cut into small pieces

1 tbsp ginger paste


1 tsp cumin seeds (zeera)

2-3 green chilies slit into two

Some oil for frying & 1-2 tbsp oil for cooking

Few coriander leaves finely chopped for garnishing

salt to taste


Masala:

1/4 tsp turmeric

1 & 1/2 tsp redchilli powder

1 tsp amchur powder (dry mango powder)

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/4 tsp cumin powder

1/2 tsp garam masala (optional)

Preparation

  • In a vessel pour some oil to fry the Aloo & gobi. Rub some salt on Aloo & gobi & once the oil is hot fry them on medium to high flame till they are almost cooked. Drain & remove the fried aloo gobi on a plate lined with tissue paper to soak the excess oil. Keep this aside.
    Tip: I like to give the gobi (cauliflower) some brown color by frying it on high heat for 2 mins as it adds to the flavor
  • Now in another vessel, heat 1-2 tbsp of oil & once hot add the add bay leaf & cumin seeds. Once the cumin seeds start to splutter add the green chilies & onions. Saute it.
  • Once the onions are translucent, add the tomatoes, ginger paste & salt. Mix well & cook for about 5 mins with lid on till so that the tomatoes become soft.
  • Now add all the ingredients listed under Masala & saute for 5 mins or till this mixture is well combined and starts giving out some oil from the sides.
  • Add the fried aloo gobi & mix well. Cover & let this cook with Lid on for about 5 mins.
  • That's it our Aloo Gobi is ready, garnish with coriander & serve hot with Paratha/Roti/Chapati or any indian bread of your choice.
