Aloo Gobi (Dry)

This combination is a popular favorite and quite ubiquitous in Indian restaurants. We prefer the dry version and so I do not add any tomatoes when making this... but there are some versions that include it.

ALOO GOBI


Ingredients:
Cauliflower - 1, cut into florets & washed.
Potatoes - 2 to 3, medium, cut into medium cubes
Onion - 1, sliced thinly
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - half to 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Cumin seeds - half tsp
Oil - 1 to 2 tbsp, as required


Method:
1) In a wide pan, heat oil and add cumin seeds, followed by onions and fry till brown.
2) Mix all the masala powders & salt with a bit of oil to make a paste and add this to the onions and saute for a few seconds.
3) Add the cauliflower and potato pieces and stir until uniformly coated with spices.
4) Sprinkle a few drops of water, cover and allow to cook on a medium flame until they are tender, stirring occassionally / tossing until golden brown.
5) Garnish with coriander leaves, if desired, and serve with warm rotis.

  4. Can never resist Aloo Gobi, cook it atleast once every week and does not hurt that the whole family loves it. I avoid the tomatoes as well makes it a bit mushy.
