The classic Aloo Gobhi Masala (Potato & cauliflower cooked with spices)

Aloo-Gobhi masala or potato-cauliflower is one such classic combination of side dish, that has more than 1000 varieties available and any way you make, it always amazes you. I have tried making this dish more than 10 ways, but still I look for other ways to make it differently.
Recently, I found this recipe on Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's Page. I just loved the simplicity of the dish which brought out the flavours of this classic dish.
So, without much ado, let's move to the recipe :::::::::
Ingredients ::
Potato : 3 (medium-cut into medium chunks)
Cauliflower : 3 cups(cut into small florets)
Ginger : 1 inch pieces(grated)
Green chillies : 1-2(finely chopped)
Tomatoes : 2(medium-chopped)
Cumin seeds : 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder : 1 tsp.
Red chilli powder : 1 tsp.
Coriander powder : 1 tsp.
Salt to taste
Sugar : 1 tsp.
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Fresh coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :
  • Heat 1 tblsp. oil in a pan. Fry potato pieces in medium flame for 2-3 minutes. Keep aside.
  • In the same pan add 1 tblsp. oil, add cumin seeds, once they splutter add green chillies, ginger and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add cauliflower, salt, turmeric powder and cook on a medium flame for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, red chilli powder, coriander powder, now add the potatoes and cook for another 7-8 minutes or until potato and cauliflower are completely cooked, but not overcooked. [Cook the whole dish in medium-low flame].
  • Remove from fire. Serve hot garnished with fresh coriander leaves.
This is a dry dish. This dish can accompany with any Indian dal(lentil) and any kind of Indian flatbread or with plain rice. I'll recommend everyone to try out this dish sometime, will love it for sure.
