Alu Gobhi (Potato - Cauliflower Dry Subji)

Alu Gobhi is a popular side dish for roti/rice and found in many restaurants. Here's my home-made version of it.

1 cup cubed potatoes (I have used red potatoes & left the skin on in the above pic)
1 cup cauliflower flowerets
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper pwd

Toss the potaotes and cauliflower with the oil, salt and pepper. Broil in oven for 10-12 mins, stirring in between, till slightly browned. The potatoes and cauliflower should be almost cooked by this time.

In the meanwhile, heat 1 to 2 tsp oil in a large wok. Fry 1 tsp cumin seeds. Add 1/2 cup chopped onions and saute till transluscent. Then add 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, 1/2 tsp ginger paste and 1/2 tsp garlic paste. Cook on medium low heat for 5 mins. Add the broiled potatoes and cauliflower at this stage. Add seasonings per taste - salt, sugar, cumin pwd, coriander pwd, garam masala pwd, kitchen king pwd, and crushed kasuri methi. Add 1/2 cup water and mix well to coat the potatoes and cauliflower with the spices. Cover and cook on medium low heat for 5 to 10 mins.

Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with rotis or rice.
