Cauliflower Potato Masala ~ In Kerala Style

Cauliflower & Potatoes make a lovely pair. The popular North Indian dish Aloo Gobi is a favorite among many people. Here is my recipe for a semi-dry Cauliflower  Potato Masala which goes well with Rice & Rotis.

Ingredients :

Cauliflower florets : 1 medium sized
Potatoes : 2 medium sized, peeled & diced
Onions : 1 medium, diced
Tomatoes : 1 medium, chopped
Green Chilies : 2, slited
Curry Leaves: A sprig
Cilantro (Coriander Leaves): few
Ginger-garlic Paste : 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder : 1/2 tsp
Chicken Masala Powder : 2 tbsp
Chilly Powder : 1 tsp
Coriander Powder : 1 tbsp
Garam Masala Powder : 1 tsp
Cumin Powder (Jeera) : 1/4 tsp
Oil : 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water as needed

Method :

Clean the cauliflower florets by soaking it in warm water mixed with a pinch of turmeric powder for around 5 minutes. Wash and drain the florets and keep aside.

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a non stick pan and saute onions until translucent, throw in the curry leaves and slit green chillies,saute for a few more minutes.

If using tomatoes, add the chopped tomatoes and saute until the tomatoes are cooked. Then add ginger garlic paste, chicken masala powder,turmeric powder,chilly

Now add the diced potatoes along with salt to taste and stir fry for a few minutes until lightly browned. Cover and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes until the

Next add the cauliflower florets and cilantro leaves.  Stir fry for a minute.
Add 1/2 cup of water to the pan and mix everything. Cover and cook on medium heat for around 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally.

When the cauliflower and potato pieces are cooked, open the pan and simmer for a few more minutes so that the masala gets coated on the vegetables.

Serve Hot with plain steamed rice or roti.
