Punjabi Aalu Gobi Sabji | Aloo Gobhi Curry | Alu Gobi Adaraki | Potato Cauliflower Curry

Zini has finally started formal school!! Now she goes to school in a bus wearing uniform!! Today she even got homework!! Makes me realize that my little girl is growing big!! Thankfully she likes the school and has made a friend whom she was seen hugging today!! Touchwood..
So now I am back to having some free time. Hence here is the recipe of Punjabi Alu Gobi ki sabji that I made today. My hubby is a very fussy eater. There are very few vegetables that he likes to eat and thankfully Alu Gobi is one of them. It is one of Zini's favorite too!! As a result I make this curry every week!!
Why I like it? It's so easy to cut and clean and gets cooked in a jiffy. It is also flavorful, delicious, healthy and naturally vegan!! If you are averse to potatoes then you can replace it with peas or can altogether skip it. During my Hyderabad days, I was very thankful for Aalu Gobhi as it came in handy in morning rush hour!! So if you are in hurry but want to eat something tasty yet healthy, go for this simple curry..

Ingredients:

Cauliflower (Phool Gobi) - 1 medium sized
2 Medium sized potatoes
finely cut ginger (Adrak) - 1/8 teaspoon
2 Tablespoon oil
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi)
Salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon red chili powder (lal mirch powder)
2 teaspoon Coriander seeds powder (Dhania Powder)

Method:
1) Wash and cut Cauliflower in florets, remove stems. Soak in salted water to get rid of germs if any.
2) Peel and cut potatoes of almost the same size as the cut cauliflower florets.
3) In a thick bottomed Kadai (Wok), take oil and heat it. Add finely cut ginger to it, let it brown a little.
4) Now add the cauliflower (sans water) and potatoes to the wok.
5) Add salt and turmeric powder, mix well.
6) Cover and cook for around 15-20 minutes. Keep stirring in between, esp if you wok is not thick bottomed / non stick.
7) Once the cauliflower and potatos are about to get cooked (are about to get mushy), add red chili powder and Coriander powder. Mix well.
8) Cover and cook for 5 more minutes.

Serve with rotis..

Notes:

1) You can increase or decrease the amount of red chili powder as per your liking.
2) In case you don't have coriander powder, replace it with coriander - cumin powder or curry powder (garam masala) in reduce amount.
3) You can replace potatoes with peas, or totally skip it.

  8. You know, I can never get this right, I tend to overcook the cauliflower sometime or undercook the potato! Will need to try again!

    1. Used to happen to me too.. Thankfully now I've got the hang of it. i've realized that cuting the cauliflower and the potatoes to the optimum size helps.
