Aloo gobi

There are many recipes for aloo gobi, a popular Indian dish made with potatoes, cauliflower, and spices. The dish has a long history, and its origins are thought to date back to the 16th century.

Aloo gobi is traditionally made with ghee (clarified butter), but oil can be used as well. The dish is usually cooked on a stovetop, but it can also be baked or grilled.

Aloo gobi is often served with rice or roti, and it can be flavored with a variety of spices. Common spices used in aloo gobi recipes include cumin, turmeric, garam masala, and ginger.


When making aloo gobi, be sure to use fresh ingredients. Start by heating up some oil in a large pan and add in the cumin and mustard seeds. Toast them until fragrant, then add in the onions, ginger, and garlic. Saute them until fragrant, then add in the potatoes, cauliflower, and turmeric. Cook until the potatoes and cauliflower begin to soften, then add in the tomato paste, garam masala, and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes, then finish off with a squeeze of lemon juice. This will help to bring out the flavors of the dish. Be sure to adjust the spices to your own personal taste. Enjoy!
