Found a different way to make aaloo gobhi, the difference being no boiling but frying.. It tastes heavenly.. 🙂
We had gone to one of my sister-in -laws place for lunch, she had prepared aaloo gobhi fry, when I ate it there I decided to give it a try for sure…
Preparation Time:- 5 mins | Cooking Time:– 20-25 mins | Serves:- 2-3 people
- 1 medium sized Cauliflower (Phool Gobhi) chopped as small florets
- 2-3 medium sized Potatoes (Aaloo) chopped in small cubes
- 1 table spoon Mustard oil (Sarson ka tel)
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tea spoon Turmeric powder (Haldi Powder)
- 1/4 tea spoon red chilli powder (Lal Mirch powder)
- 1 tea spoon Cumin seeds (Jeera)
- 1 and 1/2 tea spoon garam masala
- 1 tea spoon Dry Mango powder (Amchoor Powder)
Heat the mustard oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Allow them to crackle.
Add the chilly powder, salt and turmeric powder to the oil. Now add the chopped gobhi & aaloo and mix gently so that everything gets folded in the masala properly.
Simmer the stove and cover the lid. Allow it to cook for about 10 minutes. Stir in middle to make sure that it does not get burnt.
Now remove the lid and stir. The vegetables will get soft due to the initial steam cooking. Now we need to fry them.
Sprinkle the garam masala and dry mango powder. Mix well.
You can cook for another 10-15 mins, stirring every now and then. Allow a bit of it to get burnt, it tastes really well.. Trust me.. 🙂
Once the veggies turn a bit golden turn off the heat.
- Aaloo Gobhi Fry goes well with hot chapatis/paranthas and curd.
