Aloo Gobi

This is adapted from Julie Sahni's recipe in "Savoring India". Simple, yummy dish with chapati!


1/2 head cauliflower
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 tablespoons peeled and minced ginger
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon red chilli powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
salt, to taste
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup chopped cilantro


Wash and chop cauliflower into small pieces (about 1/2-1 inch).
Heat the oil in a sauce pan. Add cumin seeds and let them sputter for about 30 seconds, until they turn a little darker. Add potatoes and stir fry for 7-10 minutes, until they are slightly browned and almost cooked through. Add ginger, garlic, turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala and salt. Stir to coat. Add cauliflower and water. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until cauliflower is soft (another 7-10 minutes). Uncover, and cook a little longer until excess water boils away. Toss in chopped cilantro.
