  • 1 10-oz. pkg. diced onions, or 1 large onion, chopped (2 cups)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (4 tsp.)
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger

  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. brown mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp. ground turmeric
  • 6 Yukon gold potatoes, cut into ½-inch pieces (1½ lb.)
  • 1 head cauliflower, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces (1½ lb.)
  • 1 tsp. sugar

Yes, how to prepare without a pressure cooker?

Sounds good, but what if I don't have a pressure cooker?

I did this as a stir-fry (no pressure cooker) but steamed the cauliflower and baked the potatoes ahead of time. Did a water-saute (no butter or oil, no sugar either) of the rest of the ingredients and then tossed in the cauliflower and potatoes. Still came out excellent! Very tasty dish that I have served company.

I would definitely revise this recipe a little. I followed the directions and I was left with a very mushy dish! I was very disappointed to see how a classic Indian dish like aloo gobi has been so drastically changed and please don't get me started on the addition of sugar. Why do we need to add sugar to every dish. We need to bring back authentic Indian cooking. Take an Indian Base that contains no preservatives and simply add your veggies to it.

This is my first dish from the site that I am making hoping it comes out great! :))

No pressure cooker so I boiled the potatoes and cauliflower while making the sauce. I then combined everything and heated over low just to allow things to mingle. Omitted fresh ginger simply because I did not have it and I substituted the dijon mustard as recommended by SusanK. Great dish with basmati rice and rainbow raita.

I would not use a pressure cooker, I agree with J Schula, it is wonderful for any time, lunch or dinner.

it looks so delicious:) but i think that food do not need sugar and salt. there are curry powder, turmeric n pepper at this recipe.

I've made this 3 times without the pressure cooker and here's what I think has worked best. - saute onions, add garlic/spices according to directions - add potatoes, cauliflower, sugar and 1 - 1.5 cups water or broth (broth adds flavor) - bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10-15 minutes (or to desired softness) - add peas, heat through and simmer off any extra liquid (if desired) This recipe is SO good (I've been making it without the brown mustard seeds because I haven't found them yet). I also add carrots when I have them.

No Pressure cooker either...any other suggestions?
