Aloo Gobi

What is aloo gobi?

Aloo = Potato
Gobi = Cauliflower


Do I have to use boiled potatoes?

You can use boiled potatoes or raw potatoes. If you use boiled potatoes, add them towards the end (as in the recipe below). If you use raw potatoes, add them at the same time as the cauliflower.

Is Aloo gobi keto friendly?

The amount of potatoes can be scaled down pretty easily. I personally prefer more cauliflower than potato anyways! Scale down the potatoes to whatever amount fits your macros! You can also add a couple extra teaspoons of ghee/oil to up the fat.

What garam masala should I use?

A good garam masala is vital to this dish. You can make your own using my recipe here or buy one. I’ve used and recommend the MDH one, which works great for a lot of North Indian dishes.

How can I make this more party-friendly?

The amount of oil in this recipe is for regular home cooking. If you’re cooking this for a party, feel free to go slightly heavier on the oil. As they say in my family, “jo kare ghyo, na kare maa na kare pyo.”
