How to make Aloo Gobi (cauliflower and potato curry)
Ingredients and method
3 large or 6 small potatoes peeled and cut
1/2 large or 1 small cauliflower
1 cup fresh coriander (cilantro) roughly chopped
1 large onion finely chopped
1 14oz can tomatoes
1/2" fresh ginger peeled and cut or 1 teaspoon
2 cloves fresh crushed garlic
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp cumin
1 teaspoon corriander seeds
2 tsps garam masala
1 fresh green chili chopped and de-seeded (optional)
Brown seeds and other spices except garam masala in shortening, add onions and cook until soft. Add can of tomatoes and a little water.
Add potatoes and cauliflower and coat with the sauce.
Add garam masala and cilantro and chili - stir
Allow mixture to boil and stir, simmer for 30-45 minutes on a low heat covered, stir from time to time to ensure mixture does not stick to bottom.
I find this dish is even more flavourful if I make it in advance and allow to sit in the pan for a few hours and finalize cooking when ready to serve.
Cooking and prep time approx 1 hour.
