The best part of this recipe is that it suits almost everyone. It is a vegan gluten-free, soy-free and a nut-free recipe.
The recipe for aloo gobi, process or spices varies slightly by region and of course the family. The everyday home-cooked version is usually a dryish seasonal vegetable or sabzi.
Not all Indian dishes (even if they are called curries) have a sauce. The dry ones are actually called a subzi or sabzi. While aloo gobi is a dry vegetable variant, restaurants outside India might make it into a curried/saucy dish.
Aloo Gobi is a very classic North Indian dish that translates into potatoes and cauliflower (English version). It’s a one-pot, super simple, comforting dish that’s ready in 30 minutes flat. Full of flavour, you’ll be making it every night. Although it is Punjabi, it is popular not only throughout India but also in Nepal and Pakistan.
Its key ingredients other than potatoes and cauliflower are onions, one simple tomato and a variety of spices, which are all slowly simmered and usually served with rice, bread, chutneys, or a cucumber salad. While most people don’t, I usually add kasoori methi to my dish and it makes the taste a long lingering one.
The cauliflower florets need cautious cleaning because of a possible presence of tiny green worms. This aloo gobi ki sabzi recipe is highly loaded with the nutritional content and tops in the menu during the wedding and party occasions.
