Gobhi Aloo (Cauliflower Potato)

Gobhi Aloo is a ubiquitous Indian side often relished with Indian breads. It's a common dish made in everyday meals. With Cauliflower so easily accessible in this country, one has to explore new recipes every time to refrain from getting bored of this vegetable. I seem to be running out of ideas on how to cook this veggie.
This recipe was googled and struck a chord due to its North Indian-ness. The recipe was not copied to the word but adjusted to my taste and pantry.

Serves 2. No preparation required.

1. Cumin seeds
2. 3 tsp oil
3. A pinch of heeng
4. 3 tsp coriander powder

7. 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
8. 1/2 boiled potato, cut in wedges
9. 1/2 cauliflower, cut in bite size pieces
10. few tbsp water.
11. Salt to taste
12. Bay leaf
13. Tomato, cut in bite size pieces

1. Heat  a wok.
2. Add oil and then heeng and bay leaf.
3. Add cumin seeds to the oil and let it sizzle.
4. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, and red chili powder.
5. Mix then add cauliflower.
6. Add salt and water.
7. Cover and cook for 10 mins on medium flame.
8. Mix.
9. Add boiled potato and a small tomato.
