Aloo Gobi (potato And Cauliflower Curry)

Aloo gobhi is all time favourite of Indians not only in India but also people who have migrated to other counties also cook Aloo Gobhi quite often. This reminds me of the movie, ' Bend it like Beckham' where the mother of the Sikh girl aspiring to play soccer at national level tells her the importance of cooking ' Aloo gobhi' over soccer to get the right match. At the end of the movie the girl brings the soccer trophy but admits that although she cannot make ' Aloo Gobhi' but can ' bend it like Beckham' was just a dialogue from the movie but it tells how ' Aloo Gobhi' is integral to Indian food. Gobhi is a seasonal vegetable, mainly available in autumn and winter but nowadays it is found throughout the year in supermarkets. It is almost a daily side dish in India and this being an Indian website, we cannot afford to miss out this recipe. Here is a very basic way of making aloo gobi.
