  1. just made this today – came out perfect!
    I have made Aloo Gobi numerous times and it never really worked – always looked kind of dull and taste was only ever ok … but the above recipe works – here are my comments on it:
    1. I used 3 tomatoes instead of 1, I skinned and removed the seeds
    2. I used red potatoes

    I think the point you have to watch out for is to really cook the cauliflower
    a lot – fry it until very golden brown.

  2. Glad that the recipe worked for you. Yes, you made a good point – the cauliflower should be fried until it becomes golden brown!

  3. I want to know what are your regional dishes which your mum cooks for you for dinner. And they should be your favourite. I want to know what these households eat everyday.I know they must be cookiing thousands of wonderful dishes. But I would love to know only seven of them. :)
    Iam indian & my mum too. The list of her seven dishes which are indian & I love are:- Rajma chawal, chane ki dal roti, bhindi ki sabji, paranthen with dahi, cholay, bharwan karela, aloo gobhi!

  4. Now that I have some good aloo gobi recipes. I also need a recipe for the little green chilies to serve with it. :)
    This is what I know……
    they are the small green chilies that are very typical to indian cooking. She put them in either vinegar of lemon juice. Then in the fridge. They taste soooo good with the aloo gobi!! I have tried to make them but mine just don’t taste the same. Damn!!
