Spiced Cauliflower and Potato Gobi

spiced cauliflower potato gobi

I am very thankful to have a family where everyone likes to try new things! Lately, we have been testing our palates with a variety of Asian cuisines.

When I start to see items like fruits or vegetables that are nearing the end of their freshness level, that’s when I get creative and try to re-purpose them into a new recipe, hence my very easy to make Cauliflower and Potato Gobi.

I had tried this dish at a local Winnipeg East Indian restaurant during one of their amazing cooking classes and I was hooked! I am SO glad I know how to make it myself now. I’m sure I may be missing a few “traditional” ingredients but whatever,  it tastes good to me and my family LOVED it!

Spiced Cauliflower and Potato Gobi

Yummy Spiced Cauliflower & Potato Gobi – perfect addition to any meal!

  • 1 small cauliflower head (chopped into small florets)
  • 2 – 3 small potatoes (boiled and diced)
  • 2 – 3 small plum/roma tomatoes (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro (minced)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1 tbsp ginger (ground)
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 cup water ((optional))
  • 1 tsp chilies (ground)
  1. Combine the turmeric, cumin seeds and ground chillies in a small bowl. Set aside
  2. Add the olive oil to the skillet or wok (I used a wok). Warm the oil using medium-high heat.
  3. In a separate bowl toss the tomato and ground ginger together and saute in the wok.
  4. Add the turmeric, cumin, chili mixture and continue to saute for a couple of minutes.
  5. Add the cauliflower and cook for about 15 minutes (covered). For a ‘sauce’, add the water.
  6. Add the potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes uncovered.
  7. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with cilantro.

**Substitution – Use fresh sliced ginger instead of ground ginger for more flavour (unfortunately I didn’t have any)**
