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.

  1. @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.

  2. I love Indian food! I made this tonight with some chana masala and it was absolutely heavenly. I'll be adding this to my favorite Indian recipes.

    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!

  4. I was looking at your cauliflower recipe and it reminded me of one I had that was a salad. I liked the combination of indian spices and cauliflower so I now have to make yours. It sound delicious.

  5. I am going to have to try the spicy cauliflower. It looks lovely!

    I really like the new look for you blog. Very spiffy!

    Oh good. I had been looking for this type of recipe. I love cauliflower in Indian restaurants and want to give it a try at home.

  7. 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 #.
