Aloo Gobi ( Dry )

 Aloo Gobi is a popular Indian dish made with potatoes, cauliflower and some Indian spices. This is a

 simple side dish which goes very well with rotis, chapati or even sambar or rasam rice. I have not

 added onions or tomatoes to this  dish as I wanted it to be little dry. If you like you can add them too,

 but do not add water if you want this curry to be a dry side dish.

This recipes goes to week 2 day 2 of Blogging Marathon 122 under the theme " Dry Side Dishes".

Boil 4 cups water and add potatoes and cauliflower florets into it.

Cook till they are 70% done.drain water and  set aside.

In a deep kadai, add oil, cumin seeds, chopped garlic, green chili and curry leaves.

Saute for a minute and add  turmeric powder,  coriander powder, cumin powder, salt , chili powder

 and 1/2 cup water and mix and cook for a minute.
