Aloo Gobi Subzi - Dry

Its quite hard to believe its the last week of the month almost. This month has been a whirlwind of sorts. Among almost accepting a job as an English teacher, struggling to fix the ignition in the stove and trying to get the bike up and running, i also managed to bake some chocolate doughnuts and get in my hands into a delicious pie. I also managed to kick start a baking class and read up on a few favorite recipes. And that s where this Kashmiri Gobi Aloo figures.
The Avant Garde Cookies chose Kashmiri cuisine as the theme for week 3. And i m kicking off the week with this delicious and ridiculously simple recipe. Believe me, its so simple yet so rewarding that it will put a few family favorites like shahi paneer to shame. After my tryst with the malai kofta, which is the most demanded recipe in the neighborhood when i cook, i had a thoroughly awesome time making this curry. It calls for very few ingredients and is amazingly flavor loaded. So, try it when you are short on time and yet you want that one dish that will make your table glow. - See more at: http://www.tomatoblues.com/2013/07/kashmiri-gobhi-aloo-subji-recipe.html#sthash.sUMDHXS8.dpuf

Phew! Its the end of the month already. This month has been really hectic, a travelling month I must say! Had been to nice holiday to "The Goa". Why do I say "The Goa" you ask? Psst...here's the secret. This was my first ever trip to Goa!!! I know your eyes are all popped out. That's a fact. There was so much hype around Goa that I've been waiting to visit this place all my life! Its beautiful I must say, and friends made it a magical experience.

A week later, it was a business trip to Hyderabad and now this week I'm headed to Pune. I'm living out of my suitcase. Yayyy I have arrived :-) It feels like a star or a high flying business tycoon already :-) I know this will come true soon, but for now, I am just struggling to set up the business.

So much of travel, does take a toll on the home front. Since lunches are usually street food or left overs from the previous night because its just me who eats lunch, I make sure dinner is fresh and healthy.


I generally make aloo gobi whenever I have to use cauliflower as a vegetable. We like to have it with plain phulka's and dal.


Ingredients:

1 medium sized cauliflower, cut into florets,
2 medium sized potatoes, cut in big cubes,
1/2 cup fresh green peas,
1 medium sized onion, cut into long thin slices,
1 large tomato, grated,
1 tsp cumin seeds,
1 tsp mustard seeds,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp coriander powder,
1 tsp cumin powder,
1 tsp red chilli powder,
1 tsp shahi garam masala,
1 tsp ginger garlic paste,
2 tbsp oil,
Salt to taste,


Method:
  1. Clean and wash all the vegetables and set it aside.
  2. In a kadhai, heat oil, add the cumin and mustard seeds and allow it to splutter. And the onion and fry until it turns translucent. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry until the onion turns light golden brown in colour. Add the grated tomato and fry until the oil separates.
  3. Add the potato and fry for about 5 mins in low flame. The reason being potato takes the longest time to cook and if you add that to the masala first, it would cook evenly with the rest of the vegetables later.
  4. Add the cauliflower and green peas and mix well.
  5. Add the turmeric, cumin, coriander, red chilli powder and mix well. Add salt as per taste and just a little water to help the vegetables cook evenly. Put the lid on and let it simmer.
  6. Once cooked, before removing from the flame, add garam masala powder and mix well.
  7. Garnish with fresh green coriander and serve hot.
I like to keep the daily cooking very simple yet healthy and tasty. This is a very simple and quick recipe to make. If you prefer a wet gravy, add more water during the cooking. Try it and do give me your feedback!
