Aloo gobi (Potato Cauliflower sabji)

Aloo gobi (Potato Cauliflower) is a healthy and filling sabji with minimal flavours and ingredients. A great side dish for roti, pulav and nann which can be easily prepared within 15 minutes. My uncle (mother's brother) taught me this aloo gobi recipe. During my school days he taught me to prepare perfect rotis. Even now in our family, he is the master in preparing rotis. Not only in cooking he is having so many talents like painting, drawing, writing poems and stories. He started his career in Delhi so he was familiar with different varieties of sabjis, pulavs and rotis. One day he invited us for a dinner. For dinner, He prepared this Aloo gobi, roti and veg pulav within 30 minutes. He made this aloo gobi within 10 minutes and he served it with soft rotis, veg pulav and a bowl of veg salad. He had actually used simple, everyday, basic ingredients  to prepare this tasty aloo gobi.  



Now let's see how to prepare this Aloo gobi. This is a one pot dish and you can use either pressure cooker or pressure pan. Always try to choose cauliflowers which are tightly packed with less black spots. Make sure to use good quality white potatoes. There is no need for any additional flavours like ginger garlic paste, garam masala powder or coriander powder. I think the garam masala powder is unnecessary for this dish, but if you want  to add, you can sprinkle a little in the final stage. Lastly the main flavour in this dish is a handful of freshly chopped coriander leaves. For this dish no need to add any water. The potatoes and cauliflowers are sauted well in the oil and it has to be cooked with the little steam in the pressure cooker. Let's see how to prepare this recipe in detail.
