Alu Gobhi


1 Potato, chopped into 1-inch pieces
1/2 Cauliflower, flowers cut - don't cut the the flowers very small, cut them by the stem and make it smaller if the flower is too big
1 small onion, chopped fine
1-2 green chillies, chopped fine
1/2 tsp Jeera
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Dhaniya Powder
1/2 tsp Amchur powder
1/2 cup dhaniya leaves, chopped fine
2 tsp Oil
1/2 tsp Garam Masala (optional - if you like it spicy)

Serves 4


1. Heat oil in a pan. Add Jeera and green chillies and let it crackle. Saute onions till transluscent.

2. Add turmeric and dhaniya powder and fry for 1 min.

3. Add all the chopped vegetables and salt. Mix well.

4. Cover, simmer and let cook till vegetables are done. Stir in between so that it doesn't stick to the pan. Here in US the vegetables have a high water content. So I cover for a little while and then cook without a cover, so that all the excess water gets evaporated. Plus I add all the masalas right in the beginning including the ones mentioned in step 5 to avoid mixing later on as that will make the cauliflower mushy.

5. Add garam masala, amchur and dhaniya leaves. Mix. Serve hot.
