Aloo Gobi

My bestie was visiting from the US and kept going on about how yummy Aloo Gobi (potatoes and cauliflower) was and that I should make it. So after she left (and because I was missing her terribly) I bought some cauliflower and whipped up my own version including fried onions and fennel seeds, both of which give a sweet and tasty twist on the original Indian dish. Best of all – the kids love it!

Serves 6 as a side dish

Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Cooking Time: 20 minutes

 

Ingredients

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 small cauliflower
  • 1 brown onion
  • ¼ cup ghee
  • 1 heaped tsp garlic and ginger paste
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 20 curry leaves (optional)
  • 1-2 tsp salt, to taste
  • Few cracks of pepper

Method

  1. Peel the potatoes, and chop into 1 cm cubes. Set aside.
  2. Break the cauliflower apart into small florets.
  3. Bring a medium pot of water to the boil and boil cauliflower for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. Peel the onion, cut in half and slice thinly into half-rings.
  5. Heat the ghee in a large wok. Add the sliced onion and fry on low heat for 5 minutes, until transulent. NOTE – you don’t want to brown the onions too much at this stage as they will cook further after the potatoes are added.
  6. Add ginger and garlic paste, turmeric powder, paprika powder, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves (optional). Fry for 1 minute.
  7. Add the potatoes, stir to coat well with onion/spice mix and fry for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently until potatoes are cooked through.
  8. Add the cauliflower, stir and cook for 2 minutes until heated through and coated evenly with masalas.
  9. Add the salt to taste, and a few cracks of pepper. NOTE – You may need a bit more salt depending on the size of your potatoes and cauliflower. The flavour of turmeric really comes out well when seasoned correctly.

This is a great side dish to any meal, and you can add fresh chopped chilli if you want more of a kick!

Enjoy! GPW
