Punjabi Gobi Aloo Muttar ki sabzi

punjabi gobi aloo muttar ki sabzi

This is very first entry to RCI Punjab event hosted by Richa of As Dear As Salt. RCI stands for 'Regional Cuisines of India', a very innovative idea started by Lakshmi of Veggie Cuisine . Punjabi cuisine is famous for its rich and spicy ingredients and mouthful of tasty food. The favourite dishes flashes to you mind when you think of Punjab is Sarson ka Saag and Makke di roti, Lassi, Punjabi Samosa, Parathas and many more. It also reminds me of 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' (Superhit Hindi Movie).

This everyday PGAM sabzi is generally eaten with rotis or parathas(flatbreads) as well as a yogurt relish and some pickles. You may serve it as part of any meal, along with greens, beans, and rice or bread.

Hi Padma,

I was looking for gravies made with gobi and hit on urs. It was an excemllent dish, i tried it out yesterday with the exact measures given. The taste was fanatastic except that it turned out to be more ike a dry one, there wasnt enough gravy left. Any suggestions other than adding water ;-)


Padma said...

Hey Sini, thanks for your kind comments, I searched for your mail id, but couldn't find one in your comments so posting my reply here. Well instead of using finely chopped onions and tomatoes, your can puree them together and add it to the curry and in the end when the subzi is done add some fresh cream to get some extra gravy!

Hope this helps and let me know how that turned.

I tried out your recipe with the exact measurements you have given and it was fantastic. The only thing I found missing was that you did not mention that peas also need to be boiled but I guessed it. But other than that it is good. Keep up the good work!
