Hema's recipe: Aloo Gobi
I wanted to try this aloo gobi for long time. But I wanted to do it along with any pulao.
So I did this with vegetable pulao and it was just great. The potato and cauliflower with the gravy was so aromatic.
And this recipe is little different from my previous gobi mutter
1) Potatoes - 2
2) Cauliflower - 2 cup (florets)
3) Onion - 1(finely chopped)
4) Tomatoes - 1
5) Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
6) Garlic - 2 pods
7) Green chilli - 2 nos.
8) Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
9) Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
10) Garam masala - 1/2 tbsp
11) Turmeric - a pinch
12) Oil - 2 tbsp
13) Salt - to taste
14) Coriander leaves - a few
1)Wash the potatoes, peel them , cut into cubes and boil them.
I microwaved them for 4 mins. Keep it aside.
2)Cut the cauliflower into florets and boil them. keep it aside.
3)Please see that these both are not overcooked.
4)Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds.
5)When they sizzle, add finely chopped onions and fry till they are golden brown.
6)Put tomatoes, ginger, garlic, greenchillies to a blender and blend it.
7)Now when onions are done, add this tomato paste and fry till the raw smell goes.
8)Add chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric and salt and mix them well.
9)Keep stirring it well so that it does not stick to bottom. A nice aroma will come from the gravy.
10)Now add the boiled potatoes and cauliflower. Add water if needed.
11)Cover and cook in the medium flame for about 10 minutes.
12)Switch off the flame and garnish with coriander leaves.
13)It goes well with chapathi, poori or any pulao.
1) Mushroom lovers can add mushroom to this gravy.
2)Adjust spice according to your taste.
