  • Non-stick pan


  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 2 Potatoes (Aloo)
  • 400 gm Cauliflower (Gobi)
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Corinader leaves
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp Red chili powder (high heat)
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1.5 tsp Salt


  • Peel, wash, and cut 2 potatoes into big pieces. Heat 3 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan, add potatoes to it. cook on medium flame, stir in between.
  • Once potatoes start getting golden brown color, add 1/2 tsp salt and continue to shallow fry both sides.
  • After a few minutes the potatoes will be fried on both sides. Take them out on a plate.
  • Fry cauliflower florets in the same oil.
  • Once the cauliflower florets get brown spots, transfer them to the plate.
  • Add 1 tsp hing (asafoetida) and 2 chopped tomatoes to the oil.
  • Further, add 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves to the tomatoes. In this recipe, I have added coriander leaves at two stages. With tomatoes in oil and at the last stage for garnishing when the aloo gobi is ready. However, you can avoid adding it to the tomato but I like to add coriander to the tomato mixture in the initial stage as it gives a good flavor.
  • Additionally,  add 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp garam masala powder, 1 tsp cumin powder, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, 1/4 tsp red chili powder (high heat). If you are using low heat red chili powder then you can use more quantity.
  • Mix well, in 1-2 minutes tomatoes will turn soft and will be mixed well with the spices
  • At this stage, add shallow fried cauliflower florets and potato pieces to it.
  • Stir gently and let it cook for 7- 8 minutes on low flame.
  • Once aloo gobi is combined well with the tomato mixture, switch off the gas.
  • Your delicious aloo gobi is ready. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.


Tips for making Aloo Gobi

  • Cut cauliflower and potato into big pieces so that it maintains the texture.
  • While shallow frying the cauliflower, do not cover the pan else the cauliflower florets may turn soggy.
  • It is advisable to cook tomato spiced mixture with shallow fried aloo gobi on low flame for at least 7-8 minutes so that all the flavors come together.
  • Shallow fry the potatoes and cauliflower in a good nonstick pan to avoid using excessive oil.
