Dr. Anup’s Aloo Gobi Masala Recipe

This cauliflower and potato curry is a favorite of many of my American friends. It is a traditional Indian recipe that promotes health of the liver through the benefit of cauliflower as well as gives much energy from the potatoes. This recipe is adapted from “Ayurveda: A Life of Balance” by Maya Tiwari.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil or sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. coriander seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse black pepper
  • 1 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp. dried fenugreek leaves (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

Cut cauliflower into florets and small stem pieces. Scrub potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes. In a large skillet, combine water and oil along with seeds and black pepper. Sautée for 2 to 3 minutes on medium heat. Add cauliflower and potatoes. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in turmeric, garam masala, fenugreek, and salt. Add a little more water, if needed, to prevent sticking/burning. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat until dry, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring intermittently. Remove from heat when potatoes are softened sufficiently. Serve with desired grain or pressed salad.
