My favorite of the Indian dishes

July 20th, 2006 | 2 Comments »

This was my favorite of all the dishes I made. I love this combination of cauliflower, potato and spices. The fenugreek is an amazing flavor, the seeds are toasted in oil until they are black and WOW……the taste is…..Mmmmmm. And really different. This had the best spice combo and balance of all the dishes. Just right, nothing too overpowering or heavy. I will make this again and again until I cannot stand the sight of cauliflower anymore.

Gobi Aloo (Cauliflower Curry)

1 head cauliflower, chopped
3 potatoes, cubed
1 chili chopped
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup peas
2 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon ghee or butter
2 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon









1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon Fenugreek (Methi)
2 Bay leaf

Mix all the spices except fenugreek and bay leaf together in a bowl and stir well.


Sauté Fenugreek (Methi) in oil till it turns black. Add Bay leaf.

Add potatoes, half of the spices and sauté for few minutes in medium heat.

When potato is half done, add Cauliflower.

Add tomatoes, peas, and chili and sprinkle rest of the spices over it. Cook and stir until cauliflower is tender.

Serve hot with Rice or Roti.
