Aloo Gobi (curried cauliflower and potatoes)

So, funny story about this dish, haha.  I was boiling my water for the potato....but I couldn't find it anywhere!  I remember putting it in the bag in the grocery store, but it mysteriously disappeared when it came time to cook the dish!  But I made it with only the cauliflower, and it turned out just as well....so if you're silly like me and forget the potato, never fear!  :P

Aloo Gobi (curried cauliflower and potatoes)

1 small cauliflower, cut into florets
1 medium potato, peeled and diced
1 small onion, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1“ ginger, chopped
ground coriander
2 tsp garam masala 
turmeric, to taste
red chili powder, to taste
mustard seeds 
sesame or peanut oil 
salt, to taste

Boil water and salt, and add potato pieces until just soft.  Add the cauliflower florets, salt, and enough turmeric to flavor the potatoes and cauliflower, and cook for another 2 minutes. Drain the water completely and keep aside.  Heat oil and mustard seeds until they start to pop; be careful not to get hot oil on your skin!  Add grated garlic until light brown, and add the diced onions until transparent. Add salt, turmeric to taste, and chilli powder.  Add tomatoes, garam masala, and ginger, and sauté until the tomatoes cook completely. Add the cooked cauliflower and potato, and mix well. Cover, and sprinkle water in if necessary.  Serve warm.

Hope y'all enjoy!

xoxo, Sara
