This is my version of the Aloo Gobhi, with the Masala added making up for the lack of ginger and garlic. The drizzle of lime juice and the garnish of coriander leaves make it a delicious accompaniment to roti or Dal rice.
- 500 gms Cauliflower
- 2 large potatoes
- 1tbsp dhania/ coriander powder
- 1 heaped tsp jeera/ cumin powder
- 1 tsp chilly powder
- 1tsp sugar
- A large pinch of haldi/ turmeric powder
- Juice of half a lime
- 1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
- 3 tbsps oil
- Coriander leaves
Chop the cauliflower into flowerettes. Cube the potatoes. Heat oil. Add the jeera and after it splutters add the potatoes, haldi, coriander and jeera powder, chilly powder and toss. Add the cauliflower. Mix well. Sprinkle a little water, cover and cook over a low flame. When three fourth done add the sugar. Do not overcook the cauliflower and potatoes. Both should be done but firm to touch. Squeeze the lemon juice, garnish with coriander leaves and mix well.
Serves four adults.
