I'm recovering from both pneumonia and the flu - both contracted as a result of working too hard, and not being home to cook properly. So, I'm making an effort - even if I come home late, even if I'm tired - I. Must. Cook. I just stay healthier that way. Anyways, last night I finished work around 8 p.m., and threw this together using the contents of my fridge. It's an easier version of this dish than my customary
(which is also very good if you have the time).
Lazy Aloo Gobi
- 1 chopped onion
- a thumb-size piece of ginger, grated
- olive oil
- garlic cloves
- "Dani Masala" to taste - this is my cheap, what's-in-the-cupboard version of Garam Masala, a random mix of cumin, cayenne, turmeric, salt, pepper, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and coriander. Make it up, it's more fun that way.
- 1 potato, cubed
- 1/2 a head of cauliflower, chopped up
- handful of peas (frozen will do)
- cilantro to garnish
Fry the onions, ginger and garlic in a saucepan in a splash of olive oil. Add the Dani Masala, and cook for another few minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water to the saucepan, and the potato, stir, cover, and cook for about 12 minutes on medium heat. Add the cauliflower and cook for another 12 minutes or so. Throw in the peas. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with rice or naan. YUM!
