Posted in : Veg/Non Veg on by : Simmi Iyer

Aloo Gobi is a vibrant dish made with potatoes, cauliflower and Indian spices. Our twist on this popular delicacy serves it with runny poached eggs for a quick and healthy midweek meal


  • potatoes 2 medium (about 300g), peeled and chopped
  • cauliflower 1/2, cut into florets
  • groundnut oil 1 tsp
  • onion 1 large, diced
  • green chilli 1, chopped
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed
  • ginger crushed to make 1 tbsp
  • black mustard seeds 1 heaped tsp
  • chilli powder a pinch
  • ground turmeric 1/4 tsp
  • eggs 2
  • fat-free yoghurt to serve
  • coriander a handful, chopped


  • STEP 1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water for 5 minutes, adding the cauliflower for the last 2 minutes, then drain well.
  • STEP 2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the onion for 5 minutes. Add the chilli, garlic and ginger for a minute, then add the mustard seeds and spices. When the seeds start to pop, add the potato and cauliflower and coat in the spices. Season well and cook over a medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes until the potato and cauliflower is tender and the edges are golden and crisp. Meanwhile, poach 2 eggs, drain, and serve on top of the potatoes with a dollop of yogurt and scattered with coriander.
