Happy weekend friends!

I hope that this week has been treating you well. Mine was a bit busy. Right now I am feeling ravenous and I intensely want to eat this ‘Aloo Gobi’ (आलू गोभी) which was made for dinner yesterday. The good news is that I still have some leftovers, so I can indulge in it today as well. 🙂

Alright, let’s talk about today’s heavenly recipe without further delay. It’s Dhaba Style Dry Aloo Gobi.

This basic vegetable curry is so satisfying, so comforting and just the best. Plus, this aloo gobi is vegan too. All I can say is that this recipe is definitely a keeper.

Aloo Gobi is one of such dishes which can be made in a hundred ways. So, there is not a particular single recipe for making any ‘aloo gobi’. I must say there are so many ways of making this humble dish.

I can assure you one thing that, whenever you eat this ‘potato & cauliflower’ combination in any spicy recipe, it would forever come out astounding. There is something about this pleasant combo of ‘aloo & gobi’. As you now know that there are myriad of ways of cooking this dish, so today I preferred to share it the way it is served at ‘Dhabas’ which are roadside eateries in India. I just LOVE all Dhaba style food. They somehow feel raw.

Dhaba (roadside eateries) style food is very popular in the Northern part of the India. I have always adored the dhaba style food because it is prepared wholesome and they always cook food the traditional way. This traditional style cooking is usually missing in restaurant style food.

Talking about the Dhaba style food, I just recalled that I have also shared an incredible Dhaba style recipe earlier — the mighty Malai Kofta’.

Coming to today’s Aloo Gobi, this very simple and easy dhaba style aloo gobi is one of my favorite ways to eat this dish. My other favorite version of aloo gobi is Achaari aloo gobi’, which is a dry sabzi, so it goes so well with parathas, chapati as a side dish.

This delightful Indian dish, the ‘Dhaba Style Dry Aloo Gobi Sabji’ is a dry version of the curry. Aloo aka potatoes are the key ingredient of this dish.

Sautéeing: In this recipe, potatoes and cauliflower florets are sautéed in the little oil before adding to the onion tomato masala. Sautéeing adds both richness and exoticness to this dish, and the result is that they are not so greasy, yet so flavorful.

Cutting and sizing: For this recipe, I would recommend cutting the florets slightly bigger than the potatoes. The reason is that cauliflower florets will take lesser time in cooking, and if you cut them both in the same size, there are higher chances that florets would go mushy and we certainly don’t want that.

Making it flavorful: This Dhaba Style Aloo Gobi is a moderately dry dish, but some kind of liquid is needed for cooking the masala and sautéed vegetables. The liquid we are using here is the tomato puree and a little water.

Tomato puree: I have used tomato puree for this recipe because it gives a great color. But traditionally, freshly chopped tomatoes are added to this dish. Feel free to use any kind of tomatoes.

Cooking for taste: Another best thing to bring out the delicious taste is to cook the onion tomato masala until the oil rises. That is the ultimate sign that spices and tomatoes have merged well. I have made an instant onion, ginger and garlic paste just before cooking for this dish. You can also use the separate pastes.
