Aloo Gobhi ki subzi (Potato and Cauliflower stir fry)

Crisp and mildly spiced Potato and cauliflower stirfry -cooked in North Indian way

Aloo Gobhi is a classic North indian curry/subzi originally from the Northern state of Punjab,but now very popular in India and pakistan.

This can be found in the menu card of every big or small restaurant and dhaba's.Every home have it's own version and choice of spices to make it, some like to deep fry the vegetables before adding in the curry,some make it in the tomato gravy-I have already posted Gobhi Masala but personally I don't like to make it spicy always,it taste great with mild spices too.

I add some crushed black cardamom seeds and home made garam masala with the routine spices to enhance the flavour.You can also add peas instead of potatoes and make it as gobhi matar stir fry.Try this simple curry,you will surely love this.

Hi Anjana,
I tried this recipe from your blog and it came out really wonderful. I usually make aloo gobhi with garlic and onion.This one tasted great without any of it.
I made some substitutions such as using kasuri methi as you suggested and I used green cardamom instead of black as I did not have any.Following you! Thanks
