Aloo Gobi


"Traditional Indian dish made of spiced cauliflower and potatoes. This dish is steamed and then fried in oil making it intentionally dry and somewhat crispy. WARNING: This dish is extremely spicy, which is the way I like it. However, if you don't like your food that spicy, feel free to cut down on the serrano pepper and/or cayenne pepper. Also, I would recommend serving this with a side of raita or plain yogurt to cool the mouth down after eating."

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat in a large pot. Fry the cumin seeds for a few seconds until they turn golden brown and begin to pop. Reduce heat to medium, stir in the onion, and cook until lightly browned. Stir in serrano pepper and ginger, fry for 1 minute. Season with coriander, paprika, turmeric, cayenne, and garam masala; cook for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  2. Stir in potatoes and salt, cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the cauliflower, cover, and cook until the cauliflower steams in it's own juices until it's tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, then pour the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil around the edges of the pot. Increase heat to medium-high and fry for 3 to 5 minutes to brown, stirring gently to avoid mashing the cauliflower.

Overall pretty darn good. But we found it to be so spicy it was almost inedible. Next time I will cut down on the cayenne pepper. I also found that the cooking time was almost double what was re...

I omitted the spicy peppers to fit my four year old, and had to add a bit of water to assist in steaming the cauliflower. It was delicious!

Pretty good recipe... although I did leave out the peppers (it was plenty spicy for me without!). I would cut the potatoes smaller, the cauliflower was done faster than the potatoes. I used a ...

I don't know why, but I had a really hard time with this recipe. The potatoes and spices scorched my pan badly. I added the oil so I don't know what went wrong. I used a nonstick pot. I'm perple...

By far this is one of my favorite dishes. I love traditional Indian food and all of its spices, but unfortunately don't get enough of it. I've had this dish made by many different chefs and th...

So freaking good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

humm... maybe I didn't something wrong but it didn't taste very good... the after taste of turmeric made it a little bitter and metalic tasting.
