Masala Gobi

Cauliflower & Potatoes cooked in a spiced gravy

Masala Gobi is the alternative to Aloo Gobi as it is cooked in a thick gravy which goes well with rice as well as roti. It is an exceptionally tasty dish as the vegetables soak up all the flavours of the sauce. The ingredients are cooked slightly longer than Aloo Gobi making it a lot creamier too. Give it a go – it’s a personal favorite.
