This is a simple and easy to toss together recipe using cauliflower. Serve this dish with Indian breads such as thin rotis or naans - even a pita bread will do! Garnish with coriander if you'd like. Asofoetida can be found in some grocery stores, but will most likely be found in a specialist Indian grocery store, it is often called 'hing'.
I just wanted to let STARLITI know that the Aloo Gobi in the Indian restaurants will not taste like this recipe. Reasons: the oil used is much more and the cauliflower heads and/or the potatoes may also be deep fried before being mixed in. This recipe is a dish that is served on a regular basis in Indian homes and that is why it cannot be as rich as the one served in the Indian restaurants. The nice thing about Indian recipes is that you can mix ad vary the amount of spices based on your tastes - once you have figured out what you like!

Fantastic recipe. To thicken the sauce, pureed poatoes may be added along with the potatoe cubes. I have found this gives the dish a more authentic flair. - 07 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Pretty decent all the way around. I added more than a pinch of turmeric; the asafoetida was, as in any dish, unnecessary. - 22 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
