Aloo Gobhi

Recipe by  

"This is a very classic Punjabi sabji. I have eaten aloo gobhi in many homes and restaurants, and like most homey dishes, I have never eaten two versions that taste the same. This is my recipe for making aloo gobhi."

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion, garlic, and ginger in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir the cilantro stems, green chiles, and turmeric into the mixture. Mix the tomato into the mixture and continue cooking until the tomatoes are softened. Add the potatoes; cook and stir until the potatoes are completely coated in the mixture. Fold the cauliflower florets into the mixture; season with the cumin, coriander, garam masala, ground red pepper, sugar, and salt. Pour the water over the mixture and stir until evenly mixed.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the potatoes and cauliflower are tender but not mushy, about 20 minutes. Taste for desired seasoning. If you feel the sabji is not tart enough, add the tomato puree. Garnish with the cilantro leaves to serve.

This was perfectly seasoned and easy to make. I subbed coconut oil for veg, and agave for sugar, and next time I'll use cumin seed instead of ground; I prefer the texture and concentrated flavor it adds. Although the directions suggest the tomato puree is optional, I think it's necessary for that extra zing. A definite keeper!

My taste buds did not like this recipe. This is the first time I've made a recipe using fresh cilantro. Did not like the taste or the smell of it. Recipe was also time consuming to make.

Instead of using the vegetable oil, I just sprayed the pan, and I omitted the sugar. This is a great hot, spicy meal! I'll be making this again!

This was very good and very easy. I didn't have any cilantro on hand, so I omitted it. I am sure it would be very good. My husband liked it, and my picky children were split, one wouldn't eat the potatoes, but had everything else, the other wanted more tomatoes.

We made this tonight, and it came out really well with some minor caveats: there was too much onion (next time we will use a small to medium one), even using only 1 chile pepper it had quite a kick-- only use 2 if you like your aloo gobhi REALLY spicy, it needs extra salt because of the potatoes, which soak a lot of it up. It was really easy to make, and we will definitely try this again.

Tastes great except it was not spicy enough, so I added 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

a good side dish, but I was looking for a main meal

Have been trying different recipes for Aloo Gobhi and have finally found THE ONE! Added more of the spices to get a little more kick but the flavor was super yummy. Great recipe!
