This potato cauliflower curry is one of my favourite vegan Indian recipes. Possibly the fact that it's featuring my two favourite vegetables has something to do with it. In this, quick and easy vegan recipe, potatoes and cauliflower florets are cooked in a rich and creamy tomato, ginger garlic sauce and spiced to perfection with traditional Indian spices: lots of turmeric, coriander, cumin, chilli and paprika. Aloo gobi is usually served as a vegetarian side dish in Indian restaurants but cauliflower-obsessed vegans gladly turned this simple Indian recipe into a main course. This fuss-free yet flavourful potato cauliflower curry is vegan and gluten-free. Serve it with fragrant basmati rice, wholemeal roti and fluffy naan bread, garnished with fresh coriander and with a dollop of plain vegan yoghurt on the side. So simple and so amazing.
I've got something for you, cauliflower haters! Try your childhood trauma in this recipe, and hopefully, everything will be beautifully resolved. How dare you say that cauliflower is a boring, bland vegetable? It's not bland. It's versatile! Learn the difference. The beauty of cauliflower is that it will always listen to you, and you can do whatever you want with it. You just haven't tried to make a curry with it.
It's such a simple recipe. It's just my two favourite winter vegetables thrown in together. And admit it, cauliflower and potato always get on well together 🙂 They definitely like each other in this recipe. You can also add a cup of green peas if you'd like.
This will taste amazing with fluffy cumin rice or vegan naan.
