Aloo Gobi-liciousness (North Indian style)


A few years ago my brother MM discovered a great source for Indian food recipes - chef Vah Reh Vah's easy to follow (and entertaining, check them out!) YouTube videos. A couple of days ago, when my cravings for spicy and comforting food struck, I knew I shouldn't waste time pouring over dozens and dozens of recipes but instead should head straight for Chef Vah's website. I followed his recipe almost exactly but pre-cooked the potatoes and cauliflower separately and only simmered them with the sauce for a few seconds. 

In addition, I made a quick raita for cooling of the spicy aloo:
-  half a cucumber, chopped
-  thinly sliced green garlic
-  black pepper
-  salt
- yogurt

For added flavor, I moistened the jasmine (yes, I cooked jasmine rice by mistake instead of basmati) rice with some coconut butter.
P.S. Here is a link to Chef Vah's aloo gobi video.


  1. Can you please summarize the recipe.. Watching that guy is excruciating.
