Aloo Gobi

Since I Selected cauliflower as the vegetable for this week's BM, The next recipe I decided to post was a side dish for rotis / chapathis. And the first thought that struck my mind was Aloo Gobi. Whenever I visit punjabi dhabas I used to order aloo gobi with rotis. Punjabi dhabas serve very delicious aloo gobi. Here is my version below.


Potatoes - 3 to 4( chopped)
Cauliflower - 1/2( chopped)
Onion - 1 ( chopped)
Green chilli - 2
Ginger&garlic paste -  2 Tsp
Mustard seeds -1/4 Tsp
Jeera - 1/2 Tsp
Chilli powder - 1 Tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 Tsp
salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp


  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard and Jeera ,when it starts spluttering add chopped onions and green chilly.
  • Add ginger&garlic paste, fry for a few minutes and then add potato and cauliflower pieces. Sprinkle water, close and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Once the potatoes and flowers are cooked 80-90%, Reduce the flame to medium and start frying until potatoes are soft.
  • Now add turmeric powder, salt, chilly powder and fry in medium flame for 2 minutes.
  • Switch of the flame when potato and cauliflower almost cooked and browned little bit.
  • Enjoy Aloo Gobi with rotis or chapathis.

Aloo Gobi would also be a good side dish for some of the mixed rices like tamarind rice, lemon rice, curd rice etc..
