No Onion,No Garlic, Aloo Gobi

No Onion,No Garlic, Aloo Gobi

 

Aloo Gobi can be prepared in many ways. Coming from a Punjabi family I have grown up eating Punjabi version of adraki aloo gobi ki sabzi. We as a family loved it and used to have it at least once a week.

 

After I got married, I discovered how much my husband also loves eating aloo gobi. Though I do not have patience like my mom to cook it masaledar in a Punjabi style every single time. I found out a shortcut to prepare it which makes it easier for me to cook early in the morning for his lunch box.

 

Aloo Gobi Recipe

 

This recipe of aloo gobi doesn’t have onion and garlic added. Though I use Maggi Magic masala to enhance the taste, which has onion and garlic powder. If you are looking for no onion no garlic aloo gobi ki sabzi recipe, you can avoid adding maggi magic masala.

I add basic spices in this recipe to make it taste homely and delicious. We both like aloo and gobi to be crispy and simply cannot stand the mushy gobi taste. So, I shallow fry them. This way it remains crispy as well and does not absorb as much oil as deep-fried.

Notes

• Shallow frying aloo and gobi prevents it from turning mushy.
• Sometimes gobi cooks faster than aloo, depending on the type. If not sure, shallow fry aloo and gobi separately.
• Mustard oil not only gives a nice flavor but is healthy as well.
• Adjust spices as per taste.
• Blanch gobi to make sure it is free from any worms. It also helps in faster cooking.
• Soaking potatoes in water helps it preventing from oxidization.
