  • 3 tablespoon Mustard Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin Seeds jeera
  • 1 pinch Asafoetida hing (optional)
  • 2 Dry Red Chillies
  • 1 inch Ginger cut into thin juliennes
  • 2 Green Chillies slit lengthwise
  • 2 large Tomatoes sliced
  • 2 large Tomatoes roughly pureed
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric haldi
  • 1 teaspoon Kashmiri Red Chilli powder kashmiri lal mirch
  • 2 ½ teaspoon Coriander Powder dhaniya powder
  • 350 grams Cauliflower cut into florets (approx 3 cups cauliflower florets)
  • 2 medium Potatoes peeled and cut lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Fresh coriander chopped for garnish


  • Place the cauliflower florets in a bowl and pour hot water on them. Set them aside for 8-10 minutes.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons of Mustard Oil in a skillet or kadhai. Shallow fry the Gobi (cauliflower) and Aloo (potatoes) for 5-7 minutes. Once cooked, use a skimmer to remove them from the kadai and set them aside.
  • In the same kadai, add the Jeera (Cumin Seeds) to the remaining oil and let them splutter. Add whole Red Chillies, Hing (Asafoetida), Ginger, and Green Chillies. Stir-fry for a minute on low flame.
  • Add the Tomato Puree, Coriander Powder, Turmeric Powder, Chilli Powder and Salt. Mix well, cover, and cook for 5 minutes on medium-high flame.
  • Now, add the shallow-fried Gobi and Aloo along with sliced Tomatoes. Mix everything well. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes on low flame or until the Gobi is tender. Stir 2-3 times in between.
  • Finally, add freshly chopped Coriander and mix on high heat for 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat and serve hot!



  • This recipe does not require onions and garlic, but if you want, you can add sliced onions and chopped garlic right in the beginning
  • Matar or green peas is also a great addition to aloo gobi. Boiled green peas or frozen peas can be added along with tomatoes and cooked for a few minutes
