One of my favorite recipes in Indian cuisine is aloo gobi and I order almost every time I go to an Indian restaurant. Aloo means potato and gobi cauliflower in Hindi and they are the main ingredients of this dish.

I already had a similar recipe that, in addition to potatoes and cauliflower, included peas or to kill in Hindi (aloo gobikill). This is the improved version and it is even richer.



  • 1 ó 2 cucharadas de aceite de oliva virgen extra (opcional)
  • 225 g de coliflor (8 oz), troceada
  • 225 g de patata (8 oz), pelada y troceada
  • 1/2 cebolla, troceada
  • 2 dientes de ajo, troceados
  • Un trozo de jengibre de 1 cm ó 1/2 pulgada de grosor, troceado
  • 1/2 cucharadita de cúrcuma en polvo
  • 1/2 cucharadita de comino molido
  • 1/2 semillas de cilantro molidas (opcional)
  • 1/2 cucharadita de sal
  • Una pizca de cayena (opcional)


  1. Pour the oil into a pan or pot and when hot, add the onion, garlic and ginger. Cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you don’t want to use oil, you can substitute it with water or vegetable broth.
  2. Add the potato, stir and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the cauliflower, stir and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients (turmeric, cumin, coriander seeds , salt and cayenne), stir, cover the pan/pot and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until the potato and cauliflower are tender, stirring occasionally.
  5. Serve immediately (I sprinkled some chopped fresh cilantro on top) or store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for 4-7 days.


  • You can add as many vegetables and spices as you like, or remove some if you don’t have them on hand.
  • If you don’t like it spicy, omit the cayenne . You can also use chili peppers, jalapeños, or any other ingredient that serves to make your dish spicy.
  • Nutritional information has been calculated with 1 tablespoon of oil.
