Chickpea Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower & Potato Curry)

Indian Food… we LOVE it! How could you not? It’s so flavorful, you’re allowed to eat with your hands by putting most of your dish on a yummy flat piece of bread (naan) and it almost always makes great leftovers! This is one of our favorite Indian dishes, I make a ton of them and this one is in the top 3! It’s really cheap and easy to make plus kids love it!

Cauliflower & Potato Curry

Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower & Potato Curry) recipe from (Excellent resource for all things veg!)


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium-large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh or jarred ginger
  • 2 teaspoon garam masala or good-quality curry powder, or to taste – I use Kashmiri Curry Powder from World Spice Merchants
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 – 15oz can chickpeas/garbanzo beans – rinsed and drained
  • 2 medium or 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro, optional
  • Salt to taste – I make it without salt and let everyone salt their own. The salt really brings out the flavor of the dish!
1. Water sauté the garlic over medium-low heat until golden.
2. Add the potato and about 1 cup water. Cover and bring to a simmer, then cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.

3. Add the cauliflower, then sprinkle in the spices, and continue to simmer gently for 5 minutes.

4. Stir in the chickpeas, tomatoes, and peas, and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Stir in the optional cilantro, season with salt, and serve.

    Made this tonight but substituted green lentils for the Chickpeas (forgot we were out)…the entire family loved it which includes a non vegetarian husband, a 3 1/2 yr old and a 9 mo old! Thanks, you are awesome!!

    • Lentils?! That sounds good! I’m going to try that, glad you enjoyed it!!! :-)

    April, do you think I could add diced tomatoes or puréed tomatoes to this? Had an amazing aloo gobi dish at an Indian restaurant this weekend that I can’t stop thinking about & it had a tomato based sauce. It was so flavorful!

    • There are tomatoes in this recipe but its not showing in the ingredient list so let me try to fix it. I add 2 medium or 3 diced Roma tomatoes at the end (see pics). :-)

    Perfect! Thanks, April. Planning to make this dish this week. Can’t wait to make an Indian dish at home.
