Aloo Gobi Masala Recipe - Aloo Gobi Recipe - How to make aloo gobi gravy

Aloo Gobi Masala Recipe
Aloo Gobi is a classic combination....I often make aloo gobi dry version which I have posted long back but this is the first time I am trying out a gravy version.I got this recipe from my north indian friend and this time I cooked both aloo and gobi along with gravy itself as she suggested and the gravy turned out so flavourful and yummy. You can serve this gravy with any rotis / naan or with any mild pulaos like I did.

One of my reader asked how my gravies are redish orange in color and she wanted to know whether I add food color....I add either kashmiri red chilli powder or homemade red chilli powder other than that nothing else to add color to my gravy...Even for this I used only red chilli powder.I very rarely add kesari color...but mention it then and there where I have used food color so dont confuse with it. :)

My Notes:

  • Cooking the veggie along with the gravy takes a little more time but adds more flavour to the veggie and gravy too.
  • Adding curd is purely optional,you can even skip it as the orginal recipe didnt call for it. I added curd just to add thickness to the gravy and I love the tangy taste curd adds to the gravy.
