Aloo Gobi


Aloo Gobi is an Indian dish of sauteed potatoes, cauliflower and tomatoes. It is incredibly delicious, incredibly easy to make and requires few ingredients if you have a stocked pantry. A tasty go-to for me!


  • 1/2 Medium Cauliflower

  • 2 Large Potatoes

  • 1 Large Onion

  • 2-3 Tbsp Oil

  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Ginger

  • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin Powder

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Coriander Powder

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Chili Powder (Optional)

  • 1 Can Tomatoes

  • 1 Cup Water

  • 1 Tablespoon Garam Masala

  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt (to Taste)


30-45 minutes


  1. Cut cauliflower into florets. Half the potato lengthwise, and cut into 3-4mm thin slices.

  2. Heat a large wok or pan to a medium high heat, add oil and fry the cauliflower and potatoes until they are half-cooked. Remove from the heat to a separate bowl.

  3. Slice the onion. In the already hot pan, add the oil and fry onion until golden. Add the garlic and ginger, continue to fry until the mix caramelises.

  4. Add all of the spices excluding the garam masala, and combine with the mixture. Fry for a few moments.

  5. Add the tomatoes, water, potatoes and cauliflower. Reduce to simmer and cook until potatoes are tender. The cauliflower should retain some bite to it.

  6. Halfway through simmering closer to the end, add the salt and garam masala to the dish.

  7. Serve with dark leafy greens, rice and finely chopped fresh herbs.
