HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY proud to a women:):).Wishing you a day filled with happiness and love. What's special in your home?...I made this simple side dish from my moms cook book..Aloo gobi,all time favourite side dish. This aloo gobi combination can be made in many ways and this is my mom's style,simple and flavourful. This recipe goes well with chappathi, sambar or mild pulao.Try out and let me know.

Potato -2
Cauliflower -1 small
Onion - 1
Tomato - 2
Ginger Garlic paste - 1&1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - few
Salt - to taste
To Temper:
Olive oil - 1 tbs
Jeera - 1 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon - small piece
Cardamom - 2
Bay leaf - 1

Cut and clean the cauliflower,boil the potato and keep aside.Take a kadai pour in oil,add the ingredients under "To Temper".Sauté till the nice aroma comes,then add in onion and sauté till translucent.
Then add in ginger garlic paste,sauté till the raw smell of ginger garlic paste goes off,add in tomatoes and fry till its mushy.
 Add in the spice powders,fry for 2 mix till the spice is mixed well with onion tomato,then add in little water and allow it to boil for 1 min.
Add in cleaned cauliflower florets,with some water and salt,close with a lid and allow the cauliflower to cook.
 Once the cauliflower is 3/4th done add in boiled potatoes,sauté till the masala is blended well.Check for salt and finally add in chopped coriander leaves.  

Serve this delicious side dish with chappathi or meal:)

This aloo gobi recipe is mild spiced,adjust to suit your taste buds.

Always soak the cauliflower in salted hot water before cooking.This helps to remove worms. 

Don't add more water while cooking cauliflower,this will make the cauliflower mushy and will not taste good.

Cook potato with a piece of ginger this helps to relive gastric.
