Punjabi spicy-hot aloo-gobi/Cauliflower and aloo step-by-step method.

Print Friendly and PDF

Aloo-gobi/Potato-cauliflower curry is an every day Punjabi curry dish....perfect with roti, bhatura, or naan.

Homey was bought up in Haldwani, Nainital and my mother-in-law makes excellent Punjabi dishes. I always makes this dish as it is hot and spicy and goes well with roti, naan, paratha etc. Slow cooking is important here .....all through the cooking. I am going to take you to a tour of cooking this very special dish so that, just anybody, be it newcomers or new brides or bachelors can make my fav dish.
1. Heat oil (any refined oil) in a pan and put in 1/2 tsp jeera and let it splutter.

2. Put in 2 sliced onion, chopped 1-inch ginger, 1/2 pod chopped garlic and fry for sometime.
3. Onion should really brown...remember slow cooking is the rule here.

4. Put in 2 tsp of kashmiri chill powder, 2 tsp of freshly grounded coriander powder, 3/4 tsp of freshly grounded garam masala, and a fat pinch of turmeric powder.

5. Put in 2 chopped tomatoes and salt and saute.
6. Add little water so that the tomatoes can really be incorporated and saute for sometime.
7. Thats how it should look after sauting the tomatoes .....oil should come out.

8. Now put in the cubed potatoes and gobi.

9. Add litter water, mix well and cover and cook till done on slow flame.

10. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with roti or nan
