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.
