Below is the Aloo Gobi recipe that I made for our buffe the other night. It's fairly simple but very tasty (I think so) and healthy.
Chop up 3-4 potatoes into medium/small chunks
Chop up a cup of cauliflower (roughly)
Finely chop/mince 3 cloves of garlic and one medium onion You can also add one minced red or green chili, fresh or dried. The green chilies are VERY hot though.
It calls for you to fry up a few strands (1/4 tsp) of saffron in a dry frying pan for 30 seconds to 1 min. and then grind it, but this is entirely up to you as saffron is expensive.
Get about 1Tbsp of canola oil going on the frying pan/saucepan
Fry the garlic and onions until soft (1-2 minutes)
Add the potatoes, tossing them around so that they are coated in the oil mixture. Cover them and cook for about 10 minutes.
Then add the cauliflower, adding a few tsp of water if necessary) cook for aprx 5 minutes
Meanwhile mix together ½ tsp tumeric 2 tsp garam masala, 2 tsp ground coriander and tsp ground cumin (though I prefer to use a bit less). If you don’t have the Garam Masala (which is a common spice mixture available in most commercial grocery stores or bulk food stores) add some more coriander or cumin or even curry powder.
After the five minutes is up stir the spice mixture into the potatoes and cauliflower and let cook for 2-3 minutes, remove from heat and let stand until you are ready to serve.
