A simple and satisfying Punjabi-style aloo gobi recipe, a classic dry vegetable dish combines aloo (potatoes), gobi (cauliflower) and fragrant spices. This simple dry curry goes wonderfully with roti/Paratha/Poori if you have some Moong dal, Chana masala on the side is one of our favorite go-to comfort dishes.

In this preparation, apart from cauliflower and potatoes, ginger, silted green chilies dry mango powder and garam masala is also added. This dry aloo gobi sabzi derives its main flavor and aroma from ginger, green chilies and garam masala.

Aloo Gobi: For cauliflower, you can parboil before starts making process. In the restaurants, normally fried cauliflower cooked with fried potato to give the crunchy flavor in the dish. I have sauteed the cauliflower and potatoes. You can avoid all these and cook this dish like we cook aloo Shimla mirch

Switched off the flame and garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve hot aloo gobi with Roti/Paratha/Poori along with Raita


  1. 1. I have used very less oil for sauteing and hence some potato stuck at the bottom of the Kadai in my preparation. You can add more to give proper frying.
  2. 2. This dish is no garlic- no onion version so I haven’t used. Feel free to use garlic and onion.
  3. 3. I have saute the potatoes for 5 min, you can shallow fry them until becoming golden brown.
  4. 4. No need to add water If you cooking on low flame else add 3 tbsp of water.
