Aloo Gobi

4 medium sized potato - diced
1 medium sized onion - diced
2 cups cauliflower florets
1 cup peas
2 Tbsp Oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ajwain seeds
2 Tbsp curry leaves
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp grated ginger
2 green chilli
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 bay leaf
1 tsp amchur powder
1 tsp finely diced coriander leaves

1) Heat oil in a pan. Add bay leaf, cumin seeds, ajwain seeds, ginger, curry leaves, green chilli. Add onion and fry until it turns translucent
2) Add turmeric powder, garam masala, red chilli powder. Remove bay leaf.
3) Add potato cover and cook until potato is half done. (I microwaved it potatoes for 4 mins to quicken the process)
4) Add cauliflower florets, peas, salt. Cover and cook until potato and cauliflower is done.
5) Mix in coriander leaves and amchur powder


  1. I like to blend the onions before I fry them. This way I get more gravy in my curries....Try that next time...Also if you add tomatoes to any of your curries then blend them too and add them after the onions are fried......I dont like my curries too dry so I always blend the onions in a mixer.....
    But this does increase the time to cook the onions by may be 10 mins.

  2. Will definitely try it out next time :)
