Aloo Gobi

Aloo Gobi Masala is my favourite, when i go to restaurant's, But never intended to try it at home till i saw Meeta's Punjabi Aloo Gobi. i took the key ingredients from her recipe and went ahead with my own way of making curry. it came out So Good. we liked it a lot. Thou its a dry one, you can make it in gravy form by adding Fresh Cream in the last. Iam sure this recipe will amaze you all, as it amazed us.

Desi Ghee - 2 tbsp's
Cumin - 1/4 tsp
Potatoes - 2 Big
Cauliflower - 1 small or 10 floret's
Red Onion - 1 big one (finely chop it)
Tomato - 1 big one (finely chop it)

Powder's to add :

Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder / Cayenne Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Corriander Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Corriander Leaves(finely chopped) - 1 tbsp's to Garnish

To Crush : ( Crush the following in your Pestle mortor )

Ginger - 1 inch size
Garlic - 5 cloves
Green Chilli -1


Cut the Potatoes (aloo) into cubes. take care to cut them into equal sizes. also cut the Cauliflower(Gobi) into equal size floret's. Put the floret's in Boiling water with a pinch of turmeric powder for about 2 minute's and drain them and keep it aside. Put the Cauliflower's and Potatoes in your microwe for about 5 minute's, or steam them for about 7 minute's, till they are atleast half-way cooked.

Heat a Pan, add Desi Ghee to it, let the ghee get hot, and add cumin seed's to it. roast the cumin seed's. Now add the Crushes Ginger-Garlic-Green Chilli mix to the pan and saute them for half a minute.

Add the Finely chopped onion and saute it till they turn translucent. then add the finely chopped tomato. fry them all for a minute.

Now add Turmeric powder, chilli powder, Corriander powder, cumin powder and Garam masala to the onion tomato mix. let the masala's mix up well with the onion-tomato.

Then add the half-cooked Potatoes and cauliflower to the pan and mix well. cover the pan with its lid and let the potatoes and cauliflower sit in the low flame for about 5 minute's till they get fully cooked.

Add Corriander Leaves to Garnish and add a tsp of desi ghee as a finishing serving touch.
If you want the aloo gobi in gravy form, add 4 tbsp's of fresh cream before a minute to switch of the flame. Serve it with soft chapathi's or Pulkha's.
