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

Ingredients:

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
Salt
Oil 1 tbsp.
Water 1 cup

Method:

  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.
