This traditional Indian-style aloo gobi is made with potatoes, cauliflower and the classic Indian flavours of cumin, coriander, turmeric and ginger. This wonderfully warming dish can be enjoyed as a lighter midweek meal.

  1. Blanch the cauliflower in boiling water for 3 minutes. Blanch the potatoes in a separate pan for 7 minutes. Drain and let them cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Pour 2 tbsp vegetable oil into a large baking tray and heat it in the oven. Add the potatoes and roast them for 10 minutes. Then add the cauliflower and roast for another 5 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, heat the other 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a large frying pan or a wok. Add the onions and fry over a medium heat, stirring often, until they turn golden brown (about 10-15 minutes).
  4. Add the spices, lower the heat and cook for 2 minutes. Then add the garlic and ginger and cook for another few minutes, making sure not to burn these. Add the tomatoes and raise the heat, reducing the sauce for 7 minutes or so.
  5. Then add the roasted potatoes and cauliflower, and spinach, and cook for 5 minutes. Finally, add the peas and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  6. For the pickle, mix the lemon juice with the sugar and a pinch of salt. Add the radishes and mint and toss together. Serve the aloo gobi with the pickle and some warm naan bread.
  7. Tip: You can reheat shop-bought naan in a hot oven for 5 minutes and then wrap it in clingfilm or foil. It steams itself while you finish cooking the meal.
