Aloo Gobi (Potatoes & Cauliflower)

Aloo Gobi is a popular dish made from cauliflower and potatoes. This recipe is another one of our favourites because it is so easy to make and so delicious.

Makes 7-8 servings | Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 20 min


  • 1 head cauliflower (approx 8 cups)
  • 4 yellow potatoes (approx 4 cups)
  • 3 tbsp Jaswant's Kitchen Tadka Masala
  • 2 tbsp ginger (minced)
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (for garnish)
  1. Wash potatoes thoroughly. If using new potatoes, leave the skin on (otherwise remove the skin) and cut in half lengthwise and then make half inch thick slices. Cut the cauliflower into small florets cutting through the stem to ensure they don’t fall apart when cooking. Wash cauliflower thoroughly and drain.

  2. Heat the pan on medium high heat, add oil and fry the potatoes with salt for 4-5 minutes or until slightly golden. Add the Jaswant's Kitchen Tadka Masala and 1 cup of water. Cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until potatoes are partially cooked.

  3. Add 1⁄2 cup of water, ginger and cauliflower and stir to coat all pieces with the masala mixture. Cover and cook for about 6-8 minutes (check halfway through to make sure there is still water in the pan - if not add 1⁄4 cup of water) and keep cooking until the cauliflower is just cooked through (breaks easily with a spoon). Then uncover, reduce heat and simmer until all the water evaporates (if needed).

  4. Finish with chopped cilantro, mixing well. Serve with chapatti or naan

So simple, so yummy

I stopped making Indian from scratch years ago. Too complicated. I usually order in, or occasionally try a jarred sauce. NEVER found one I liked. Using the Tadka Masala,, a little fresh ginger, and water to make this dish was ridiculously easy AND tasty. Better than I've had from our take-out favorite. It even has a nice bit of heat to it that my family craves and this wimp can handle. I am a convert.


I tried this receipe because I was looking for a good vegetarian dish, I used the pre packaged mix which worked out great because I was only cooking for two people.

I made two modifications: 1.) fresh yellow AND red potatoes with skin on 2.) added in some peas to up the veggie content and include some greens.

This turned out delicious and tasted amazing with Paratha. I’ll definitely be cooking this more often to add some variety into my cooking!

Thanks again Jaswants Kitchen! Another hit in my household!

Flavourfully Sinful

I made the Aloo Gobi using the Tadka Masala spice packet I bought at the Toronto One of Kind Show. A vegetarian dish that was very flavourful, colourful and delicious with very little salt. I followed the package recipe which calls for 1 cup water + an additional 1/4 cup of water. Why the difference Jaswant Kular?

Hi Spicgrrl! Thanks so much for the review! Sorry for the confusion about the water. The recipe on our site is for half the recipe on our pouches. With the different amounts of veggies it also changes the amount of water used. If you mean why do we add one cup then ask for more later, it's just a timing issue. You need to add one cup then cook for a little while then add more for the next step. Hope that helps!

Easy and Delicious

Aloo gobi is a favourite Indian dish of mine. This blend of spices makes it easy to make a great tasting aloo gobi. The recipe is also easy. You get so much flavour from so little! It also tastes much lighter and more healthy that the aloo gobi you might get in a restaurant.

I purchased this spice kit late last year and always meant to send a review but, even my Indian colleagues love this receipe. I can cook Indian everyone!
