How to Make Alu Gobi Recipe

Potatoes and cauliflower cooked in the base of onions with spices and flavored with ginger and green chili to make a winters must have called aloo gobi. Alu gobi recipe can be served with simple chapatis or parathas or as a side dish with dal and rice. Aloo gobi recipe can be prepared in a number of ways. Here I am sharing my mother’s aloo gobi recipe. It is the Punjabi recipe for aalu gobi ki sabji. This recipe uses quite some onions to give a base to the aloo gobi recipe. No tomatoes are added. The basic spices along with ginger and green chilies are used to flavor it. Garlic is not added.

Aloo Gobi Recipe – Ingredients required

Potatoes: Use a variety which doesn’t take too long to cook.

Cauliflower: Pick fresh, white and well binded cauliflower. While cutting it make sure to check it for the worms. Discard it if you see any. Understand the cooking time of the potatoes and cauliflower and if the need be add the two separately according to the cooking time (as done in this recipe). However it is a better idea to cook the potatoes first. As the potatoes don’t tend to get mushy easily but if the cauliflower is over-cooked it gets mushy.

Onions: Chopped onions are added. Enough onions need to be added.

Ginger and green chili: I have used these two ingredients in the paste form. However the chopped version will give better flavors.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
