Aloo Gobi Ghasi

This is a recipe that I learnt from Tarla Dalal. I used to make it often a few years ago and then I stopped making it. I remembered it recently and tried again. We really loved it.


Cauliflower Florets 2-3 cups
Potato 1 big
Peas 1/2 cup
Coconut milk 1 cup

To make paste

Onions 1 big
Coconut 3/4 cup
Red Chillies 2-3
Coriander seeds 2 tsp
Mustard 1/4 tsp
Fenugreek seeds 1/8 tsp
Cumin 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon 1 inch piece
Pepper 4
Clove 2
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Tamarind 1/2 tsp

Oil and salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Microwave the cauliflower florets and keep aside.

2. Boil the potatoes or microwave them. Peal and chop. Keep aside.

3. Microwave the frozen peas for a few minutes.

4. Heat oil in a pan. Add the onions. Saute till it becomes translucent.

5. Add the rest of the ingredients except turmeric and tamarind. Saute till it is all roasted well.

6. Add to a mixie along with turmeric and tamarind. Grind into a smooth paste.

7. Add the cauliflower, potatoes and peas to the pan. Add the ground masala, salt and some water (1 cup). Bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes.

8. Add the coconut milk and simmer for some more time.

Serve with roti or rice.

  2. Again a new one...Looks delicious...would love to give this one a try soon.

  3. looks yummy, coconut milk must be giving a nice flavour to this curry....

  4. Seriously Rosh, your space is going to become like another Tarla Dalal's, a web directory for food and recipes. I too have tried this from her space and like you said it was during the initial stages and I have totally forgotten too. Your lip smacking snap is tempting me to go at it again.

  5. Can have this aloo gobi ghasi with some rotis..beautiful dish.
