Aloo Gobi

I am a sucker for Aloo Gobi. Almost every time I go to an Indian restaurant I order it. I love how you can turn cauliflower and potatoes into something amazing with a few spices. ┬áIt’s just darn good!

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large onions, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander, separated into stalks and leaves and roughly chopped
  • 1 small green chilies, chopped into small pieces ( or one teaspoon chili powder)
  • 1 large cauliflower, leaves removed and cut evenly into eighths
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into even pieces
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala

1. Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan.

2. Add the chopped onion and one teaspoon of cumin seeds to the oil.

3. Stir together and cook until onions become creamy, golden, and translucent.

4. Add chopped coriander stalks, two teaspoons of turmeric, and one teaspoon of salt.

5. Add chopped chillis (according to taste) Stir tomatoes into onion mixture.

6. Add ginger and garlic; mix thoroughly.

7. Add potatoes and cauliflower to the sauce plus a few tablespoons of water (ensuring that the

mixture doesn’t stick to the saucepan).

8. Ensure that the potatoes and cauliflower are coated with the curry sauce.
