Aloo Gobhi / Potatoes & Cauliflower

Ok ... after that experiment, it is back to some great homely food.

This is one dish that I love to make over and over again. And is loved by everybody who gets to taste it .... especially family.

I learnt this from a Punjabi colleague's wife U. She suggested that it tastes great when made with mustard oil. And of course, you can use fresh green coriander.
I don't use any masala in it .... and the only flavour is of ginger. Tastes awesome. :-)

Need : Cauliflower cut into small pieces, potato cut into small cubes, chopped tomatoes, finely chopped ginger, haldi/turmeric powder, salt to taste and a little cooking oil.

How to : Heat a little oil. Add the potatoes and stir well. Then add the cauliflower, haldi/turmeric and salt. Cover and cook till the veggies are done.

Remove cover and add the chopped ginger and tomatoes. Cover and cook till the tomatoes are done.

Serve hot with rotis / parathas / puris. :-)
