Aloo Gobi Masala – Easy Curry for Rotis and Rice

Aloo Gobi Masala: When I hear the phrase “Match made in heaven”, yummy combination in food is something that comes to my mind. Like pooris and bhaji, idli and sambar etc., you can include the combination of these two veggies too in that list – Aloo and Gobi (i.e.,) Potatoes and Cauliflower. Potatoes and cauliflower being two of my favourite vegetables, this curry is something I truly enjoyed. My 4 year old son who is more a fan of cauliflower or potato roast also enjoyed this yesterday and asked me for a second serving. So, this truly is a hit.

There are many versions of Aloo Gobi Masala recipes – dry, semi dry, gravy etc. The one you will find below is more of a semi dry version. This recipe of Aloo Gobi Masala uses very simple ingredients easily available at home. Pair this Aloo Gobi Masala with rotis or plain steamed rice and that should be a satisfying meal. You could also pair it with some toasted bread, that should taste great too.
