    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon mustard seed
    • 1 pinch asafoetida powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • 1 pinch ground turmeric
    • 1 hot green chilli, split down its length (optional)
    • 3 roma tomatoes, diced
    • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root
    • 1 potato, cubed
    • 1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
    • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
    • salt, to taste

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat oil over a medium-high heat. Toss in the mustard seeds; when they start spluttering, add the asafoetida, followed by the cumin seeds, turmeric powder and the green pepper. Add the tomatoes and ginger; stir and fry for a few minutes.
    2. Add the potato, cauliflower florets, sugar and salt. Stir well and cook until the potatoes are cooked through and the cauliflower tender yet crunchy. (For a crunchier cauliflower, add it when the potatoes are just getting done but not quite finished cooking).

    I just wanted to let STARLITI know that the Aloo Gobi in the Indian restaurants will not taste like this recipe. Reasons: the oil used is much more and the cauliflower heads and/or the potatoes may also be deep fried before being mixed in. This recipe is a dish that is served on a regular basis in Indian homes and that is why it cannot be as rich as the one served in the Indian restaurants. The nice thing about Indian recipes is that you can mix ad vary the amount of spices based on your tastes - once you have figured out what you like! Hope this helps!  -  23 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Fantastic recipe. To thicken the sauce, pureed poatoes may be added along with the potatoe cubes. I have found this gives the dish a more authentic flair.  -  07 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Pretty decent all the way around. I added more than a pinch of turmeric; the asafoetida was, as in any dish, unnecessary.  -  22 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
