Aloo Gobi Ki Sabji (Potato And Cauliflower Curry)

Aloo Gobhi, a classic North Indian dish. Being a cauliflower and potato fan, aloo Gobhi has to be a favorite. Rotis with spiced Aloo Gobhi is a regular dinner fare during winters. There is something about the aroma of spices that go into the tadka (tempering) of North Indian cooking that makes me hungry. Typical North Indian tadka is cumin seeds, bay leaves and spice powders like turmeric, red chilli, coriander and garam masala powder, followed by vegetables. The aroma is simply enticing.


Potatoes : 2 large
Cauliflower : 2 cups
Tomato : 1, chopped
Cumin seeds : 1/2 tsp.
Ginger : 1 tsp, grated
Green chilli : 1, chopped
Turmeric powder : 1/4 tsp.
Kashmiri red chilli powder : 1 tsp.
Roasted cumin-coriander powder : 1/2 tsp.
Garam masala powder (1 cloves, 1/2″ cinnamon, 1 cardamom) : 1/2 tsp.
Bay leaves : 1 or 2
Sugar : 1/4 tsp.
