Aloo Gobi

I have been trying Raghavan Iyer’s recipes recently. This recipe is from his book: Betty Crocker’s Indian Home Cooking by Raghavan Iyer. I slightly changed the original recipe to suit our taste.

This is very easy to make (the ingredients list is long), takes not more than 30 minutes.

Aloo Gobi


Medium head cauliflower, seperated into flowerets 1
Medium Potato, cut into 2 inch cubes 2
Chopped Ginger 2 tbsp.
Garlic cloves, chopped 5
Medium Onion, chopped 1
Cumin seeds 1 tsp.
Kasuri methi 1/4 cup
Cilantro, chopped 1/4 cup
Corriander powder 1 tbsp.
Cumin powder 1 tsp.
Turmeric 1/4 tsp.
Red Chilli powder 3/4 tsp.
Medium Tomato, chopped 2
Oil 1 tbsp.
Water 1 cup


  1. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds and let it sizzle.
  2. Add onion, garlic and ginger; stir-fry till the onion is translucent.
  3. Add potatoes; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook 5 minutes.
  4. Add cauliflower, kasuri methi, cilantro, cumin powder, corriander powder, red chilli powder and salt; stir fry 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in water. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Stir in tomatoes. Cook 2 – 3 minutes or until the tomatoes are hot.

Serve warm with rice or chapati.

Notes: Over stirring the cauliflower will tend to make them mushy.
