ALOO GOBHI STIR FRY

ALOO GOBHI STIR FRY

This is a simple easy to make stir fry yet it is one of my favourites as it has potatoes and cauliflower which combine well together. If you are looking for a saatvik dish which does not use onion and garlic, this could be an option.

Cauliflower is considered one of the healthiest of vegetables. We at home are fond of it so elsewhere in this blog you will find many recipes using cauliflower including Schezwan Gobhi Matar,
Shahi Masala Gobhi, and Gobhi ka Kheema (Minced Cauliflower).

This dish goes well with both rotis and rice.



Ingredients:
  • Aloo ( Potato),  large sized 1
  • Gobhi ( Cauliflower) large sized 1 or about 500 grams
  • Green Chillies, chopped, 2-3
  • Cumin Seeds, 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli Powder, 1/2 to 1 tsp, or to taste
  • Turmeric Powder, 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander Powder, 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, 1 to 1 and 1/2 tbsp
  • Juice of one lemon, 
  • Coriander Leaves, finely chopped, for garnish.
Method:

Wash and cut the cauliflower into florets. Place them in a bowl of salt water for a short while to get rid of impurities, if any.
Wash, peel and cube the potatoes. Apply salt and keep aside.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadhai, when it gets hot add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle
Add the chopped chillies and saute for a short while
Add the cubed potatoes after squeezing out the water from them
Cover and cook on medium flame till the potatoes are nearly done
To this add the cauliflower florets and salt to taste and let it cook covered on medium flame stirring from time to time
When the cauliflower is almost cooked, add the turmeric powder, chilli powder,  and coriander powder
Stir well and cook till the spices get well blended with the potatoes and cauliflower
Add the lime juice, mix well
Finally garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves and serve hot
