Cauliflower Potato Curry Recipe
November 6, 2017 4 Comments
This cauliflower potato curry recipe should be a standard dish in your house.
I have been called the “Queen of Cauliflower” and there have been complaints about my constant desire to work this vegetable.
Hey, I am not going to apologize for loving cauliflower. (I am a little sorry about the people who get gassy when they eat it.)
Today, we are going to spice it up! This recipe is Indian comfort food and is known as aloo gobi. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and I can’t really tell you why. It is hearty and easy to make.
Cauliflower and potatoes are so bland and Indian spices such as cumin and ginger turn them into something special.
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan so if you have guests that fit any of these categories you are set. I love having something like this in my back pocket to ensure that everyone is happy.
Before you get all grumpy about having to buy the spices, you should have a few of these already in your pantry. If you have to buy one of two, remember that you will be making this often so the expense will be worth it.
I have found all of these spices at my regular grocery store. The demand for different flavors just seems to be growing for home cooks (which is a good thing). So much of American food is bland (hamburgers, mac and cheese, fried chicken) and I find that when I eat very flavorful food – I tend to eat less of it.
You can add peas to this to add a little green color and some sweetness to the dish. In addition, you could make this with sweet potatoes! Don’t hesitate to experiment.
