Aaloo – Gobhi ki sabzi

Aaloo-Gobhi ki sabzi (potato and cauliflower) is loved by almost all my family members on all occasions. This sabzi is part of our regular food menu. If we have some guests at home, then aaloo-gobhi ki sabzi will be part of the spread. You will also find this in any elaborate wedding feast!

Aaloo gobhi ki sabzi

Generally, all age groups like this. I remember that whenever during winter season we used to have sudden guests at my parents’ house, my mother used to prepare this sabzi with little extra oil and spices. We were instructed that this sabzi is only for the guests as quantity used to be less due to their unexpected arrival. The taste of the dish prepared by her used to be so out-of-the-world that my siblings and I always wished that guests shouldn’t be very hungry so that we will get to enjoy in sufficient quantity once they have eaten😀.

Children can think of anything, isn’t it!!!😇

There are a few more vegetables dishes in the blog. If interested, can take a look…Vegetables (Curries)

  1. You know that is my favourite, it is looking gooooood! (correction: one of my favourites) It looks like I cut the cauliflower in too big pieces though. Next time I will try to be less lazy … 😉 … I will definitely try your version! For green chilis I have to go into town, in our local supermarket they only have red ones, and they don’t agree with me.

    1. Jaya, my mother started using rai and jeera together. I liked it so I also continued in the same way. Here in Bangalore we get gobhi all the time. But I love when we get vegetables according to the seasons. There is no more excitement if you get everything all the time.

  2. Not a sabzi that I was fond of in my growing up years but I love it now. The only dealbreaker is when you don’t get good Gobhi.

    1. You are so right Arv. There is a lot of dilemma… If gobhi is completely clean then it is grown with pesticides and if it is not clean, we don’t feel like buying. Finally I decided to buy pesticide free ones. Wash it with hot turmeric water and use it!!

      1. Yes cause at times just cauliflower too tastes very nice without potatoes. Actually to make simple I just cut one onion and put few chillies and fry once nice and tender I keep three four lasoon and then add our spices and then cauliflower tastes nice and yummy.

      2. Lahsun aur pyaaz add zing in any dull subzi Kamal. Even French beans tastes too good with garlic ginger paste.

        I miss garlic taste a lot as I am the only one who likes it. Once in a while I prepare lahsun ki chutney to satisfy my cravings 😁😂

      3. Yes I do now like this with all my vegetables easy and simple and nice to eat. So sad there are many who don’t like in their food though it adds so much flavour. Ya even chatni is good you can have with your food. 😊😊😊😁😁😁😁

  3. Wow
    है देवी अन्नपूर्णा
    आपके हाथों में जादू देख रहे
    भाई के लिए थाली तो हाथों लाई नही
    पर फोटो में हम सब्जी मस्त देख तरस रहे।।

  4. Oh my gosh! This looks so lovely, Deeksha! My man and I love cauliflower and I’m always trying to prepare it different ways…I’ve bookmarked this and will try it! Thank You!!! Huge hugs and Cheers! 🤗❤️😊

  5. My Goodness My Goodness! Cauliflower!! My favorite!
    I went to a famous Indian restaurant before, and they served the similar dish — potatoes and cauliflower! Super delicious.
    Hope everything goes well to you and family. Hope everybody enjoy cauliflower forever.

    1. Cauliflower is a winner dish every where, isn’t it!! It is regular in our kitchen, once in a week for sure!!
      How are you doing Oscar. We are fine here though yesterday two cases were detected in our apartment. It looks like a never ending pandemic.

      1. I am ok. I did not watch news and followed the cases for a while… it is too much and too many negative news.
        My goodness. Is it ok to stay in your apartment now? Please be very careful. Please stay alert and safe. I pray for you and family.

  6. Wow, gobi vegetable is made in almost all the households. I also like it very much. You made it very well. 😊Awesome recipe ma’am🙏🌻🎆💐

  7. We made this for dinner tonight. We used tomato rather than mango powder which we could not find here. It was really delightful and we will make it again. What a great recipe for cauliflower.

    1. Anne, I am so glad to hear that you liked this recipe so much☺️ Tomatoes are as good as mango powder. Mango powder just eases out efforts of washing and chopping tomatoes. Thank you so much for your kind feedback 😊
      Have a safe and relaxed Sunday!
