Spiced Potatoes with Cauliflower. This Aloo Gobi is packed with flavors, super comforting, vegan and basically the very best aloo gobi you will ever have!
Aloo gobi (potatoes & cauliflower) is a popular Indian dish in which potatoes and cauliflower are cooked with onions, tomatoes and spices. This dish can be manufactured in several methods, you can make it with only onions or only tomatoes or use no onion-tomato at all. I also make it in diverse approaches dependent on what substances I have on hand, the aloo gobi recipe that I am sharing today is one particular of my preferred versions. It has onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic and yes spices!
1 common issue with aloo gobi is that when you cook it, the cauliflower becomes actually soggy and you don’t want that. You want the veggies to be cooked and tender but not soggy, that kind of spoils the taste and texture of this dish. Couple of ideas can assist avoid this:
one. Half cook the cauliflower and potatoes prior to adding it to the onion-tomato masala. You can parboil the potatoes and cauliflower or do what I did – fry them in little oil till they are half cooked. This assists in retaining the form and texture.
2. Don’t cover and cook the cauliflower, you can cover towards the end and cook on minimal flame only.
three. Include salt towards the finish when the dish is practically accomplished.
I have produced problems in the previous the place my cauliflower was all soggy and I didn’t like it at all and that’s how I learnt my lessons. If you follow the over tips, the texture ought to be ideal.
This recipe is vegan just like so many other Indian recipes. I had never heard the term “vegan” until about two many years ago and now when I consider about it, I virtually grew up eating vegan all the time. India has many vegetarian recipes that I grew up eating. We eat basic lentils, rice and veggies daily and nearly all of it is vegan. So enjoy this spicy potatoes and cauliflower vegan recipe from India and I hope you like it.
