Cumin Overload - Tasty Treat

Here is my recipe for aloo-gobi sabji (potato-cauliflower side dish) which relies on cumin for the flavouring more than the standard chili spice.

Start with :

Cut them real fine (especially the cauliflower)..

Use the bottom pan of a pressure cooker :

  • put two spoons of oil at medium heat

  • put channa dal and urad dal and get them to a light brown color

  • add mustard seeds (1/2 spoon) and cumin seeds (2 spoons)

  • add some asafoedita when the mustard starts splattering

  • add the onions and saute them till they turn light brown

  • then add the cauliflower and potato's (i cheat by microwaving the potato for 2 minutes before throwing it in the mix

  • add 1/2 a spoon of salt and 1/4 spoon of the standard curry powder (or sambar powder) and stir for a few minutes.

  • add 1/2 cup water mix and put the lid on the pressure cooker and wait till you hear one whistle.

  • release the pressure, open the pan and continue to stir for another two minutes and you have..

Great to eat with rice or rotis!
