Alicia's Aloo Gobi Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 12)

This is a great recipe! My fiancee and I loved it! I didn't deviate very much from what was described. However, I didn't have coriander, so I added a little extra cumin and some caraway seeds. I also only had whole cardamom seeds, so I shelled them and ground them down a little bit before adding to the recipe. This meant that there were little chunks of cardamom floating around - since I really really like cardamom, I was fine with that, but if you don't like it make sure to use ground cardamom as the recipe states. Heat is neat, so I used a lot of cayenne, but as others have mentioned, be careful. No cauliflower on hand, so used some broccoli and some peas (mutter!). It's important to let this recipe simmer for a long time in order to get the right consistency; it should be thick and easily scoopable, not runny at all. When it's simmering, make sure to stir frequently and scrape the bottom of the pan. Otherwise you will end up with pasty or burned food underneath a layer of soup. The only change I would potentially advocate would be adding maybe 1tbsp of honey; we both felt that it could have benefited from a touch of sweetness. Delicious, fairly easy, and highly recommended.

Liked this one! Fun to cook and even more fun to eat. We modified it by using far less salt (a dash rather than a tablespoon) as well as a lot less oil. It's slightly too spicy -- I'd turn down the heat the next time. But was definitely well received around here!

Yummy! It does have a bit of a kick (equivilant of say, a 3 star), so I'd suggest backing down on the cayenne a tad if you can't tolerate the heat. This is the first indian dish I haven't bombed thus far.... so I definately count this as an easy meal! Relatively cheap, too. If you already have all of the spices on hand, the rest of the ingredients add up to about $10. ***updated*** I previously forgot to mention that I omit the garam masala (it changes the flavor and I like it better without). Additionally, cutting the cayenne pepper by about half allows one to be able to taste the wonderful flavors instead of mostly just feeling the heat. Hope this helps!

I loved this!My family and I enjoyed this a lot! It didn't have the heat I was expecting though, which surprised me with the ingredient list. But for my first time making this particular dish I was very pleased! Thanks for the great recipe! : ) ***update*** made this again and it had much more heat..maybe used old cayenne last time, not sure... but thought I'd mention it... so yummy one of my favs from this site! : )
