  • North Indian Veggies.....Potatoes and Cauliflower in savory spices

    Here's an all veg recipe for you guys.

    The dish is properly called Aloo Gobi. (ah-loo go-bee)
    It's basically potatoes and cauliflower prepared fried in a wok. It goes very well with yogurt and some type of bread.

    Here is the way I prepare it.

    You need:

    1 medium sized cauliflower
    1 medium onion diced
    Olive Oil
    Salt to taste
    Pepper to taste
    1/4 cup of tomato paste
    1 inch Diced Ginger
    3 Cloves Diced Garlic
    Cumin - 1 teaspoon
    Turmeric - 3/4 teaspoon
    Garam Masala 1/2 teaspoon- You can get this at any asian market
    Cayenne Red Pepper to taste- Use sparingly!
    1 fresh green chile chopped
    Fresh Cilantro chopped


    -Boil the potatoes in their skins and allow to cool. Cut into about 1.5-2 inch squares. It is important that they are all around the same size to ensure uniform cooking.
    -Soak cauliflower in boiling water for 2 minutes....just two...if it is overcooked it will become too soft.
    -Cut cauliflower into 2.5-3 inch pieces.
    -Heat the oil over medium heat in a large frying pan or wok.
    -Add onion, cumin, ginger, garlic, red pepper.
    -Stir and fry until the onions are golden brown-8-10 minutes.
    -Add tomato paste and diced green chile.
    -Add the cauliflower, reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 6-8 minutes.
    -Add potatoes, Turmeric, Garam masala, salt and pepper
    -Stir gently until all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
    -Cover the pan and cook til the potatoes are heated through-6-8 minutes.
    -Turn off heat and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.


    Here's a pic of what it should look like...not mine...but you get the idea.

  • This sounds fantastic...I can't wait to try it. It looks easy to prepare as well...thank you very much OTYA!
