The best part about Indian Cooking is the delicious marriage between the spices and vegetables. You could create an array of wonderful curries and dishes with the magic of Spices and Herbs. This is what Indian cooking teaches you about, making plain vegetables delectable and nutritious! This is the reason why a lot of Indians who are Vegetarian can stay as Vegetarians for life. Indian cooking is all about making good use of ginger, garlic, fresh herbs and the spices but that too in right proportions just enough to revive your taste buds. I do agree too Indian food( especially in my kitchen ) is spicy, but you sure can adjust the spice to your taste. Thats the magic in Indian Cooking.

Heres my Kadai Purple Aloo Gobi Curry, Purple potatoes cooked with cauliflower and peas in a tomato based sauce flavored with Ginger, Cilantro and Mint. Lovely combination of vegetables and spices. The curry is so delicious you dont need a lot of rotis/chapthis to go with it! Yep you can finish the curry as is!

  • 1 Purple potato
  • 1 red potato
  • fistful of peas
  • 1/4 cauliflower

  • 4 tbsp oil

Method of Preparation:
  • Seperate cauliflower into florets, rinse thouroughly in warm water with salt and microwave for 2-3 min, cauliflower should still be firm
