This curry is a popular vegetarian curry that is present on any Indian restaurant menu. Aloo gobi is a curry that is made with spiced potatoes and cauliflower, hence the name. Aloo meaning potatoes and gobi meaning cauliflower.
It is a very popular vegan dish and there are a lot of different ways that it can be made. The potatoes and cauliflowers are cooked with onions, tomatoes, and spices. Some recipes only use onions. Some only use tomatoes. I like to use both because it makes for a delicious masala that lathers the potatoes and cauliflower.
Personally, I love cauliflower. It is healthy, nutritious, and delicious. What’s not to love? I know some people aren’t a fan of vegetables, but this vegetable curry is here to change that. You will fall in love with this recipe and this recipe is perfect for everyone. It’s vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free.
A common issue that arises with aloo gobi is that the cauliflower florets can become soggy. The cauliflower and potatoes need to be tender, but not soggy. When the cauliflower and potatoes become too soft and mush this ruins the taste and texture of the dish.
The main culprit of this problem is covering the pan. You do not want to cover the pan! I know some people think that this will help the potatoes and cauliflower cook faster. Whilst it does do that, the trapped water ends up causing the potatoes and cauliflower to become too soft and soggy. To avoid this don’t cover the pan and simply keep cooking until tender.
Aloo gobi is a super simple dish made of spiced potatoes and cauliflower that is packed with flavour and spices. This Indian classic curry recipe is perfect for when you are looking for a vegetarian twist on Indian curries.
