Indian Spiced Cauliflower and Potato






One of the best benefits of living in New York City is you get to taste food from around the world. Indian food is one of my favorites. Aloo Gobi is a low point vegetarian stew typically served with basmati rice and roti. This can be a main dish or a side dish, as a side dish it would feed 6. It even got two thumbs up from hubbie who is not as experimental.

  4. Hi there, I have bookmarked some of your recipe here and I cooked some. They are simple but healthy. The cauliflower looks delicious, I'll give it a try.

    Btw, I have no idea about WW. I don;t know how they way they give points. I don't know which is good, the lowest or the highest points. But I was thinking the lowest #.

  11. I cannot almost distinguish the cauliflower from the potato. I must be hungry then hehe... Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll email this to my dad (who is a chef) and I'll ask him to cook this for us as soon as he comes back. ;) Yum!

  14. Looks great, Gina!

    What size potatoes can I use? I have Easterns which are kind of small.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Wallace, 3 medium potatoes. If you are using small potatoes, use 4.

  18. Do you think it would work with sweet potatoes?

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Nora, I'm not sure how that would taste. I wouldn't personally use sweet potatoes for this, but who knows! Maybe it would be good. If you try it let me know.

    1. Can you make it without the potatoes and just double the cauliflower?

  20. Oooh oooh ooooh! Very excited to try this, as my 3 years in NYC made me Indian obsessed as well! May I request more vegetarian Indian recipes, if you ever get around to it? :) True to my Tweet word, I'm *loving* combing through your archives, such a great site!

  26. how do you get to 5 points per person with only potatoes and a bit of butter counting points (excuse my english, not my mother tongue)???

    1. When combining ingredients, Weight Watchers considers the total nutritional information. One person probably wouldn't binge on raw cauliflower, but it'd be much easier to overeat a tasty dish like this! Hope this helps.

  27. Aloo gobi is one of my favorite at Indian restaurants, but it's been over a year now since I've had it! The restaurant version does use a lot of butter/oil. I finally made this version tonight and loved it! I added 12 oz. (uncooked weight) firm tofu (and garlic) and had it as a main dish for 7 PP per serving. Such a nice, filling dish. Thanks for another great one!

  28. I made this to go alongside Madras Lentils from another site and the flavours worked perfectly together! Add some Aloo Paratha on the side and you have some happy eaters!

  29. Before adding veggies into the butter first add 1 tsp of cumin seeds wait it for crackle and then add veggies
