Aloo Gobi

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Have I told you before, that Shankar is not a foodie at all. I think, Food probably features last in his list of priorities. Its not that he doesn't love good food, But he barely requests for anything specific & I really don't think he has a favorite ( How sad is that .. Sigh ... )

When we guys were newly married, I always fancied cooking his favorite dishes. All that went kaput .. Never mind

Hey, but there is one dish that he actually said he likes, yes Aloo Gobi it is. Thank God, he likes something, at least. Nope, I didn't make it for his birthday yesterday. I made this version of Vegetable Biryani for him .. But it is Aloo Gobi that he really relishes.

I love Aloo Gobi too .. Anything that has potatoes & cauliflower has to taste good isn't it ?

You Will Need:
  • 5 large potatoes - cut into cubes
  • 1 medium sized cauliflower - cut into medium sized florets
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes - finely chopped
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tsp garlic - finely chopped
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Salt as per taste
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • In a large skillet, heat oil, splutter cumin seeds, add grated ginger & chopped garlic & fry for 30 secs
  • Add potatoes, turmeric, red chilli powder & a pinch of salt. Mix well to coat & fry on medium flame for about 3-4 mins
  • Add cauliflowe florets, chopped tomatoes & salt as per taste. Toss well. Cover with a lid & let it cook on medium flame for anout 25-30 mins. Stir occasionally. The vegetables must be firm yet completely cooked.
  • Add Garam Masala & mix well
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro.
Serve with warm Rotis .. Enjoi !!!

This simple & rustic Punjabi dish is a staple at my home too. Do you love Aloo Gobi too?

  • Immerse potato cubes in cold water to prevent them from turning brown
  • you could add a handful of green peas too
