    This is very yummy. I was confused on how much canola oil to use and I used too much . I suggest 1 tbs. I used powdered ginger and extra fresh minced garlic because I didn't have any onions! Had over buttered white Basmati rice with raita. I would make this again as it is better tasting and quicker than the recipe for Aloo Gobi I had been using.

    This was a perfect lunch! I didn't have any methi seeds, and added a touch of cayenne to heat up the chili powder just a bit. Instead of frying I roasted the potatoes in the oven for approx 30 min then added the cauliflower for the last 15 minutes, it was wonderful!

    I found it a bit confusing to follow this recipe but the flavour was very good. I used fresh minced ginger and garlic, omitted the methi seeds and reduced all the spices by about 1/4.

    I enjoyed this nicly seasoned dish. I let it cook covered for 30 minutes under low heat. I cut the recipe in half and must say there is 4 serving now.


my flickr page: Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to look @ my profile :) I'll be 15 on the 11th of September 2006....Ive been using Zaar for quite a while now and I've made tons of friends so far...... I started cooking when I was umm....12 and a half and Ive been in love with it ever since...My first project was the classic batch of brownies. I used a pan that was too big and I got really really flat brownies.....For the frosting I used granulated sugar and had crunchy frosting haha..... Ive gotten much better since then! I tend to get discouraged very easily if something I make does not come out like it was expected to....I can even get depressed over it..... I have plans on going to Le Courdon Bleu Sydney in mid 2008 and completing the Grand Diploma there...... This is my cat Kiara. I found her in the backyard when I was 10, and I started feeding her toast and grape jelly. She's on a normal cat's diet now haha. <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> This is Pluto, and sadly he went missing just before Christmas.... <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> The small pic is when I was 4, and the other is a recent pic :) <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> Lookin a bit mad...hehe
