Potato Cauliflower Curry-Gobi Sabzi Recipe-Aloo Gobi Sabji

This is another simple and tasty dish from my kitchen made with potatoes and cauliflower. This South Indian Potato Cauliflower Curry or sabji goes well with rice and also with chapati. As it is a dry sabji, it can also be used as a stuffing for sandwich or chapati rolls. Since this is such a simple recipe, I felt there is no need for step wise pictures. Today we will learn how to prepare Aloo Gobi Sabji (dry version) following this quick and easy recipe.

   Ingredients needed

   Cauliflower florets - 3 cups
   Potato - 1 cup (cut lengthwise)
   Onion - 1 cup
   Fresh Green peas - fistful (optional)
   Salt needed

   Spice Powder

   Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
   Chilli powder - 1 tsp
   Coriander powder - 2 tsp
   Vegetable curry powder* - 2 tbsp (recipe given below)

   For the Seasoning

   Oil - 1 tbsp
   Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

   For the Vegetable Curry Powder*

   Oil - 1/2 tsp
   Coriander seeds - 2 tbsp
   Bengal gram (kadalai paruppu) - 1 tbsp
   Red chillies -3

Vegetable Curry Powder* - To roast and powder 

Heat 1/2 a tsp of oil and roast the ingredients given under Vegetable Curry Powder*.
After it cools powder it coarsely. This powder is optional but I love adding this to my South Indian style vegetable curries. In case, if you are omitting this, add a little extra chilli powder.


Wash and cut cauliflower into florets and put them in hot water with a little salt for 5-7 minutes. Then drain the water completely and keep it aside.

Cut potatoes lengthwise and keep it aside. Chop onions and keep it ready.


Heat oil in a kadai or pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add onions and saute until it turns transparent.

Then add potatoes, peas and cook covered for a few minutes.

When the potatoes are cooked a little, add cauliflower florets, turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and cook covered. 

Stir in between for even cooking. After it is cooked a little, add 2 tbsp of the vegetable curry powder and salt  needed. (store the remaining powder if any for later use). Sprinkle water in between and cook covered until soft.

Serve as a side dish for chapati or rice or use as a stuffing for bread or chapati roll.
