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.

    Aloo Gobi(INDIAN SPICED CAULIFLOWER AND POTATO) is one of my favorite Indian dishes I usually crave during lunch, whether in an office or at home. I tried it myself to cook but never got that original taste.

    Your ingredients and instructions were beneficial for me to prepare at home. Keep sharing like this. I tried this dish at one of the best lunch restaurant in Chandigarh.

  2. Typically we love love love skinnytaste recipes, though we were a bit disappointed with this one. I think this would have worked better if the potatoes and cauliflower were “fried” in the air fryer and if a tomato were involved.

    I made this tonight. It was incredibly easy & incredibly good even to the non- fans of cauliflower in my home.

  4. Made this tonight for dinner, my husband and I loved it! Took other people’s advice and roasted the cauliflower and potato instead of boiling, it was definitely the way to go. Also really easy for meal prep since you can roast the veggies ahead of time and then toss everything together when you’re ready to eat. Will definitely add this into the rotation!

  5. I think by using ghee this would be made Whole30 compliant? Going to use that when I try it (probably tomorrow night). Thank you!

    I made this as per recipe but I see now I could have roasted the potatoes and cauliflower in my air fryer. I’ll do it that way next time. Great flavour

  7. I have gotten to love Indian spices and food. We thought this was great. And just a few ingredients too. I roasted veggies first and used also some cumin and mustard seeds that I toasted then pulverized. I have so many spices and seeds thought I would add them. Toasted some cashews for topping. Deciding what else to have with it if we want to stay vegetarian or some grilled shrimp perhaps?

  8. I made this yesterday to go with our WW Chicken Tikka Masala. It is so good! The only thing I did different is I roasted the cauliflower & potatoes in my air fryer instead of boiling them. I think it added an extra layer of flavor..
