Aloo Gobi

Recipe Source: Vah Chef Sanjay Thumma (Vahrehvah)

Serves: 2 people / 9-10 chapathis


• 2 cups of medium sized cauliflower / gobi florets

2 Cups of Gobi Florets

• 2 medium sized boiled potatoes in micro-wave

• ½ cup of very finely chopped onions

• ½ cup of very finely chopped tomatoes

• 1 Tblsn of crushed green-chilli-ginger-garlic paste (2 green chillies, 1 inch ginger piece & 2 cloves of garlic

Crushed Chilli-Ginger-Garlic Paste
• 1 Tblsn of kasoori methi (optional)

• Coriander Leaves

• A pinch of turmeric powder

• Salt to taste

• 1 tsp of coriander powder

• 1 tsp of amchur powder

• ½ tsp of red chilly powder

• ½ - ¾th tsp of garam masala

Ingredients For Seasoning:

• 1 Tblsn of oil
• 1 tsp of cumin seeds
• A pinch of hing


 Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and a pinch of hing. Fry till the cumin seeds turn their colour.

 Add crushed chilli-ginger-garlic paste to the pan and fry till the rawness goes off.

 Add finely chopped onions to the pan and fry for 2 minutes.

 Add finely chopped tomatoes and turmeric powder. Mix well and cover it with a lid. Cook till tomatoes become mushy.

 In the meanwhile, take ¼ cup of water in small bowl and add 1 tsp of coriander powder, 1 tsp of amchur powder & ½ tsp of red chilly powder and mix well.

 Add this mixture to the pan once tomatoes are cooked.

 Take a Tblsn of kasoori methi put them on your palms and rub them with your palms and add the powder into the pan. Mix well. (This is optional)

 Wash chopped gobi florets with water and add them to the pan. And add enough salt to it. (Note: I cooked potatoes in micro-wave. Then remove the skin and chopped them to cubes. If you are not going to do in that way add cubed potatoes at this stage and add ¼ cup of water to the pan.) Cover and cook on medium heat till gobi is done ¾th which takes around 10 minutes.

 Add cooked, peeled and cubed potatoes and chopped coriander leaves.

 Add ½ - ¾th tsp of garam masala and cover and cook for 2 more minutes. Taste it and adjust salt.

 Transfer it to a serving bowl.

 Have it with Roti, Pulka, Chapati, Paratha or Poori. It tastes yummy.
