Aloo Gobhi (Potato and Cauliflower)

I love cauliflower and I love potato, so it goes without saying that I love the combination. This is a dish that I make when I'm in a hurry. The dish gets done by the time my rotis are ready and and the preparation time is not much.


4 big Potatoes, cut into cubes

1 medium Cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
Salt to Taste

Heat oil in a kadhai and add the asafoetida, mustard and cumin seeds. When the mustard splutters, add the cauliflower and potato. Add the spices and salt. Cover and cook on a low flame for 10-12 minutes. Serve with rotis.

I'm quite a bad food photographer and so don't go by the looks of my food. Just try this simple recipe and I'm sure you'll like it.

@Jeena: Cauliflower blends well with spice. The result is rarely ever disappointing.
