Aloo Gobhi ! (Spicy Potato & Cauliflower)

When it comes to vegetable preparations,especially for dinner,I prefer Subzis,the super delicious North Indian flavours go with it ! Here is a dry vegetable preparation from Punjab,Aloo Gobhi from my kitchen.I think this dish needs no introduction since it’s everyone’s favorite.Truly yummy and rich,it can give a splash of festivity for your dinner.Enjoy !

2 medium potatoes,boiled,peeled and cut into large cubes.
1.5 cup cauliflower florets ,cut into big pieces
1/2 cup tomatoes,chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
4 whole dry chillies,broken into two pieces each
1 tbsp chopped ginger
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chopped green chillies
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chilly powder (upto your tolerance level)
1/2 tsp Punjabi garam masala
pinch of asafoetida/hing
1 tbsp lime juice
handful of chopped coriander leaves
oil,salt as required

Heat oil in a medium skillet and crackle cumin seeds.Add dry red chillies,ginger,garlic and chopped green chillies to this and sauté till the raw smell disappears.Add cauliflower florets and salt.Mix well and roast  till it turns light brown.Add the chopped tomatoes,turmeric powder,chilly powder, Punjabi garam masala,asafoetida and one cup of water .Bring to a boil and cook till the florets are soft.Drop the potato pieces,coriander leaves and lime juice now.Mix well till the masala gets well coated over the vegetables and dried up.Serve hot with Roti/Chapathi.
