ALOO GOBI Recipe- Dry Version

Print Friendly and PDF
There are many simple recipes that I cook on a regular basis but never make it to my blog.One such recipe is Aloo gobi which I prepare quite frequently . I am posting a very simple version that goes well with rice, pulav, roti or any other flat bread. Now straight to the recipe.

Aloo Gobi Curry -Dry Version Recipe:
(serves 2-3)

Ingredients:
2 cups Cauliflower florets or 1 small Cauliflower
2 medium Potatoes,cut into 1"sticks
1 big Onion,sliced
1 tsp Coriander leaves,chopped
2 Green chillies,finely chopped
1 tsp grated Ginger
1/2 tsp Red chili powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Amchur powder
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
a pinch of Asafoetida
2 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste
Method:
  • Cut cauliflower into florets and clean them.Drop them in salted hot water and keep them for a while(approx 10 mins),this process will helps in floating any unseen worms.
  • Cut potatoes into thin slices,cut them to match the size of cauliflower florets which helps in even cooking.
  • Heat oil in a big heavy bottomed kadai and crackle cumin seeds.Add asafoetida to it and fry for 10 seconds.
  • Add finely chopped green chillies and grated ginger and fry well for 30 secs.
  • Add thinly sliced onions and fry well until they are translucent.
  • Add chopped potatoes and fry well for 3-4 mins by stirring in between.
  • Add cauliflower florets to it and mix well.Fry for 2-3 mins and add 2 tsp water and cover it and cook over low-medium flame for 7-8 mins until the vegetables are cooked.Please check in between and also give a stir,if needed add little more water.
  • Once the vegetables are cooked increase the flame and let the vegetables roast a bit for 2 mins.
  • Add red chili powder,salt,turmeric powder,garam masala,amchur powder and mix well.Cover it and cook for 2-3 mins.
Garnish with coriander and serve it hot with Rice/Roti/Naan.

Variations:
  1. You can even add tomato to the recipe.Add 1 finely chopped tomato after the vegetables are added.
  2. You can add green peas to the same recipe.
  3. You can adapt the same recipe(with or without tomatoes) and make combinations like potato-capsicum,gobi-matar,potato-peas,potato-brinjal.The recipe works well for all these combinations and you can experiment with many other as well.
  4. You can skip amchur powder in the above recipe and add juice of 1/2 lemon at the end.
  5. You can add Ginger-Garlic paste instead of ginger in the above recipe.
  6. You can boil the potatoes and cauliflower florets ahead and while making the recipe skip the cooking part and proceed with the same recipe.
