Aloo Gobi Curry Recipe (also referred as Cauliflower Potato Curry) is best ever recipe from main course served with rice or roti. It is delicious dry vegetable curry sauteed with typical Indian spices and different combination of vegetables and also spruced up with common ingredients like ginger, green chilies and garlic.
Every kitchen in India has their own adaptation of Aloo Gobi curry and here is my thought on this great recipe among other Indian cauliflower recipes. In some part of India, this recipe utilize 2-3 flavor of spices and a few uses upwards of 7-10 types of herbs.
You can find another Masala okra dry recipe on the blog.
The most well-known spices, I always have on my spice-box, by 24/7 are turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder, and the GARAM MASALA. You can find them any nearby Indian Grocery Shop. Nowadays all Top general stores in world offer these Indian spices in their specific aisle.
Cauliflower is very low in calories. Also, fresh cauliflower is a very good source of vitamin C and an excellent source of minerals. This recipe is quick and easy meal on those days when cauliflower season is at peak.
I make different combination of them very often. For this recipe I also have used pigeon pea (Tuver Dana) and tomatoes which widens the taste and add some lovely flavor to it. You can also add green peas or bell papers instead of pigeon pea. The Core to this dish is not to overcook anything. This is the easy aloo gobi masala dry recipe.

Is the garnish of coriander leaves important?
August 14, 2016 at 9:53 pm
Hi Peter, Thanks for reading. Coriander tastes really good with such curries so I always garnish this dish with it. You can avoid coriander if you don’t like the taste.
