Aloo Ghobi

Even though I (Sofi) eat meat and fish occasionally, it has been much more seldom in the past two and a half years and I really enjoy a (for the most part) meat-free diet. Something that I really love is vegetarian Indian dishes and sometimes I rather eat a vegetarian option than a meat dish when I go to an Indian restaurant. So, today we decided to make one of our favourites, Aloo Ghobi. 

It is very easy to make. It is not a traditional Aloo Ghobi though, as we used cream in the dish, but we think it is fun to sometimes try a variation of a certain dish. The result was delicious 🙂

Ingredients Serves 4
Cooking time: 60 mins

  • 1 medium-sized cauliflower
  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1.5 tsp turmeric
  • 1.5 tsp garam masala
  • 200 ml cream
  • 200 ml water
  • naan or flatbread
  • 300 ml jasmine rice

  1. If you are making your own flatbread, see the steps to make the dough here. (Make the dough and let it rise for 30 mins.)
  2. Slice the potatoes 4 mm thick.
  3. Chop the cauliflower into smaller pieces.
  4. Chop the clove of garlic finely.
  5. Heat some oil in a frying pan and add the garlic.
  6. Let the garlic fry on a low heat for a few minutes.
  7. Put the turmeric, coriander, chili flakes and garam masala in the frying pan and let them fry for a few minutes on a low heat.
  8. Put the potatoes and the cauliflower in the pan and stir them in the spices.
  9. Add the water and the cream.
  10. Add some salt.
  11. Let it cook on a low heat until the potatoes and the cauliflower are soft, and the sauce has reduced. (At least 25 mins.)
  12. Make your flatbread.
  13. Take a small amount of dough and roll it out with a rolling pin.
  14. Put a small frying pan on a high heat.
  15. Put the rolled-out piece of dough in the frying pan. The frying pan should be dry.
  16. Flip the flatbread over when you see bubbles appear on top.
  17. Fry it for 2 minutes on the other side.
  18. Serve the rice and curry on a plate with a flatbread. Add chutney, yoghurt, or similar, if you want.
  19. Enjoy!
