Aloo Gobi Easy Vegan Recipe ( Cauliflower & Potato fry)

Updated: Oct 9, 2022

Aloo gobi is a vegetarian dish from the Indian subcontinent made with potatoes, cauliflower, and Indian spices. It is popular in Indian and Pakistani cuisines.

This spiced potato and cauliflower stir fry is one of the most popular Indian dishes prepared in restaurants & home

Usually in restaurants they fry the potato and cauliflowers first and then add it to the spices, but this recipe is plain and simple home style.


Oil - 2 Tablespoons

Cumin Seeds - 1 Teaspoon

Garlic - 8 Cloves

Turmeric Powder - Half Teaspoon

Cumin Powder - 1 Teaspoon

Coriander Powder - 1 Teaspoon

Red Chili Powder - 1/4th Teaspoon

Salt - 2 Teaspoons or as per taste

Potato -1 Small

Cauliflower - 1 medium

Coriander or Cilantro Leaves


Heat a pan and add 2 tablespoons of oil, you can reduce it if you like.

Then add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds. Once the cumin seeds starts to crackle, add 1 small finely chopped onion, let it cook over medium heat till it turns slightly golden brown

You will notice that the onion is reduced to almost half, stir it and make sure it doesn't stick to the pan.

Add 7-8 grated garlic cloves, let it cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Then add half teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin powder, 1 teaspoon of coriander powder, 1/4th teaspoon of red chili powder, you can always adjust the spices according to your taste.

Mix and cook for 2-3 minutes over low heat

Then add 1 medium chopped tomato to the pan, you can use tomato puree too

Let it cook over low or medium heat till the oil starts to ooze out of the tomatoes

You can even cook this recipe without the tomato, I like to add it but it’s completely optional and can be omitted on busy days

Once the oil starts to ooze out of the tomatoes and they have softened, add 1 small roughly chopped potato, followed by half teaspoon of salt.

Give it a mix and cover it and cook for 8-10 mins. If you feel that the vegetables might burn, add splashes of water or 2-3 tablespoons of water to the pan.

You have to cook till the potato is atleast a 90% cooked

Add the cauliflower and mix it well with the spices

Add 1 and half teaspoons of salt or as per taste and mix

Then cover and cook the cauliflower for another 8-10 minutes over medium or low heat

You can check the progress of the cauliflower in between and cook till it’s completely cooked

Once done add some finely chopped cilantro or coriander leaves and mix

Finally cook it over 2-3 minutes over high heat and add some more coriander or cilantro leaves

The Aloo gobhi sabji( dry vegetable) is ready

You can serve this with chapati, naan, pita bread or even rice as a side dish
