Aloo Gobi – Cauliflower And Potato With Spices (Inspired By Amma)

On another note, I was watching a special on Amma; who is believed to be a spiritual guru. She is really well-known for her hugs. People stand in line for hours; maybe even days to get one from her. Here is what the Amma Organization had to say.

Amma’ as she is known all over the world today, has inspired and started innumerable humanitarian services. She has earned international recognition for her outstanding contributions to the world community. She is recognized as an extraordinary spiritual leader by the United Nations and by the people all over the world.

So in honor of Amma, I chose to post a recipe of Aloo Gobi, which is one of the native dishes of India. The country she was born and raised. Each region of India has their own distinct flavor and cuisine but India as whole uses very bold and exotic spices. There is also a strong influence of vegetarianism due to Hinduism. Aloo Gobi is really not native to her region of India (the Punjabs lay claim to it) but it is one of my favorite dishes and very simple to make. It’s simple but packed with layers of flavor and a gentle bite at the end. It’s not spicy in sense of it being hot, but rather packed with robust flavors. And all this could be made in under 30 minutes. Top that Rachael Ray.

Aloo Gobi (Potato and Cauliflower in spices)

1 lb of cauliflower florets
4 huge potatoes unpeeled and cubed
1 small onion
1 teaspoon(s) cumin seeds
2 tablespoon(s) ginger finely chopped
1 teaspoon(s) turmeric powder
2 teaspoon(s) red chilli powder
1 teaspoon Garam Masala
2 tablespoons butter / ghee (clarified butter) / oil
2 tablespoon(s) finely chopped fresh coriander
salt to taste

Heat the butter / ghee / oil in a heavy-bottomed pan on medium heat and crackle the cumin seeds. (make sure they crackle to release the fragrant flavor)
Add the onion and saute for about a minute.
Add the potato cubes and cauliflower. Mix well.
Add the rest of the spices and salt to taste.
Mix well and simmer on low heat. Let the vegetables and spices cook in its own juices. (About 15 minutes)
Mix in the chopped fresh coriander leaves.

* Use Ghee for best results. (You can find them at Whole Foods or Indian Specialty store)

* I like to eat my Aloo Gobi with aromatic Basmati rice but you can also try with some of the Indian bread. Garlic Naan is absolutely tasty.

This is a healthy and tasty meal. Fantastic for entertaining but simple enough to make for yourself. Most of the ingredients you can find at your local grocery store. Exception of Ghee and Garam Masala. I found Whole Spice a store which grinds the spices by the order so everything is fresh. Also check out Indian Food Co.

I want to thank Indian Zen and Indian Child for the recipe.
