  1. Can we steam the vegg and then add to tomato onion puree?

    • gauri, you can do this way also. but first prepare the gravy. meaning once the masala is sauteed well. then add water and bring the gravy to simmer and cook till you want the desired consistency. then add the boiled veggies and simmer for a minute or two. finish off with kasuri methi and coriander leaves.

  2. Hi, how many whistles if I cook in a pressure cooker and what flame? Should I let it open immediately!

    • on a medium flame for 1 to 2 whistles. 5 to 6 minutes. let the pressure settle down and then open the lid.

  3. Hi, this was real good. I did put 2 tsps of sugar, and 3 tbs. of butter, only used 2 cups water and for red chili I used Sambal Oelek chili paste 2 tbs..cuz didn’t have anything else. My oil was coconut oil (and butter) and for tomatoes i used one can of Hunts Fire Roasted diced tomatoes. Also added black pepper and put in the peas 10 minutes before done cooking. (don’t like peas too mushy) Had no methi leaves. Also think I had lots more cauliflower and potatoes than called for but it turned out real good. I added the sugar and butter cuz I wanted a more mellow taste, (that’s just me!) i will return for more of your recipes!

    • pleased to know this thankyou for trying the aloo gobi, glad you liked it 🙂

  4. Family favourite! Just back from India again and stocked up on my herbs and spices.
