Masala Aloo Gobhi Recipe

It is often asked by a girl before her marriage.. do you know how to make aloo gobhi??
One of the all the time favorite dish of all the guys... It is said that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach & I agree !
I usually try to make some dishes during weekend for the guy and last weekend made Aloo gobhi :)

Now there are different ways to make this dish , I being a true Punjabi like spicy food so added a Punjabi twist to the dish ....

Ingredients -
Cauliflower- 1 medium size
Potatoes-5-6 pcs , pealed & diced
Coriender fresh - Little bit
Ginger & Garlic cloves- some
Salt, pepper , garam masala- As per taste
Turmeric- 1 tsp
Corianderpowder- 1 tsp
Onion- 2 pcs
Tomato- 2pcs
Green Chillies- 4 pcs
Mustard oil-2 tbs 

Chop the onion & tomatoes

Crush the ginger, fresh coriander, garlic & green together .

Cut the potatoes & cauliflower

I made the sabzi in iron wok , considering its health benifits.

Add mustard oil in the iron wok and after-3-4 mins add the crushed paste.

Now when it turns little golden brown add chopped onions

Let it cook for about 2 mins & when it turns golden brown then add tomatoes

Now when the masala is ready and it starts leaving oil then add the potatoes first & then the cauliflower

Add about 1/2 cuo of water and cover the wok with a lid and on sim flame let it cook for 15-20 mins.

Now this is how the final dish looks like I transferred it in aluminum wok ,it is suggested that any food cooked in iron vessels be transferred immediately to a glass or enamel dish.

You may be thinking the final dish looks a little black , that is due to the fact that I cooked it in a iron wok.

You can make the same dish in a different wok too!

Hope you liked the recipe and in-case you want to cover a particular recipe for you do let me know :)
