How to make Aloo Gobhi:

  1. Heat mustard oil in a kadai or a pan. Let it smoke for a minute. Then turn the flame to medium and add a pinch of salt, it helps in removing the mustard oil smell
  2. Add cumin seeds and let it splutter
  3. Add onions, garlic and green chillies and saute till onions are translucent
  4. Add cauliflower and fry for 2-3 mins on a medium flame
  5. Add potatoes and spices – turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and salt. Mix well
  6. Cover the kadai or pan and cook on low flame till potatoes are soft. Keep sauteing in between
  7. Now the optional part. Once the potatoes are almost cooked dig a circle till the bottom of the kadai or the pan and add the puree tomatoes (image below for your reference)
  8. Cover the kadai or the pan again. Cook for another 2-3 mins on low flame
  9. Remove the lid. Now cook for another 2-3 mins on high flame so that excess water is evaporated. Keep mixing in between so that it doesn’t stick to the kadai or the pan
  10. Turn off the flame
  11. Your Aloo Gobhi is ready to serve
  12. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Phuklas.
