Aloo Gobi

Potato and cauliflower are two of my favorite veggies. I love cauliflower so much that I can even boil them with some salt and pepper seasoned with some Italian herbs and chilli flakes and have it for my snack. Simple and healthy salad. Throw in some sweet corn kernels, parboiled carrot, green peas and you have a healthy breakfast salad. Whenever I make this, 'A' dumps in dollops of mayonnaise to make it edible for him. Throws cold stares when I tell him this is for breakfast.

So when I picked up a cauliflower from the market, he allowed me to buy it only when I promised him that I won't make the salad. So when I was browsing for recipes to use up my cauliflower, this struck in my head and I made this side dish for our dinner chapathis. He was happy to see something different on the plate with the core ingredient being cauliflower.

~*What U Need*~
Potato - 1 (Large)
Cauliflower florets - 1 cups
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Onion(medium) - 2
Tomato(medium) - 2
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1 tsp
Dried Kasurimethi leaves - 1 tsp
Salt - as required
Oil - 2 tsp

How I Made it:

Pressure cook the potatoes until cooked but firm. Peel off the skin and chop into chunks. Cook cauliflower florets in water with salt and turmeric powder until soft yet firm.
Heat oil in a pan, add jeera and allow it to crackle. Add onions and when soft, add ginger garlic paste. Fry till slightly brown. Add tomatoes and cook till mushy.

Now add turmeric, red chilli, garam masala powder and required salt and fry the masala for 2-3 mins. Add cauliflower and potatoes, mix well. Sprinkle some water and cook until the veggies absorb the masalas and becomes dry. Adjust salt at this stage. Add coriander leaves and dried kasurimethi leaves, give a stir and switch off.

Serve with rotis or rice!

So thats it Folks...
