1. Cauliflower

Remember, don’t wash cauliflower before cutting it up. After chopping, let the florets bathe in some water and then pat dry and set aside.

2. Potato

Use any variety of potatoes. If you’re in the US, the Russet, Yukon, or red variety should be perfect.

3. Green Peas

These green pearls are versatile and partner well with most Indian recipes.

4. Tomato

These add a hint of tang, balancing other flavors magnificently.

5. Ginger

Ginger is the soul of this dish. So, bring on the ginger! Use fresh bulbs for this recipe. 

7. Spices

Basic Indian spices, such as red chili and turmeric powder, are needed here.

8. Sweetener

A touch of sweetness is introduced using regular or brown sugar, according to your preference. Or a non-caloric sweetener such as Monk Fruit sugar. I usually use the latter these days.

9. Oil

Traditionally this dish used to be made with mustard oil. But feel free to use your favorite oil. I use Avocado oil now for most of my cooking.

Steps to Prepare Adraki Gobi

Step 1: Preheat the Kadai

Begin by preheating a Kadai or a wide, deep pan on medium heat and add in your choice of cooking oil.

Step 2: Sauté Ginger

Add ginger paste to the hot oil. Sauté this mixture for approximately a minute or until the raw smell of ginger dissipates.

Step 3: Introduce Tomatoes and Spices

Now, add the chopped tomatoes, along with salt, sweetener, turmeric, and chili powder. Stir this blend until the tomatoes start to break down and the oil separates.

Add in the cauliflower florets and diced potatoes to the Kadai. Mix everything well, ensuring all the pieces are coated with the flavorsome mixture.

Step 5: Cover and Cook

Cover the Kadai and let the ingredients mingle and cook together on low for around 4-5 minutes.

Step 6: Bring In the Green Peas

Next, add the green peas, cover the Kadai once more, and continue cooking on low for another 3-4 minutes.

Pro Tips For Preparing Adraki Gobi

1. The amount of red chili powder can be adjusted to suit your taste and preferences.

2. Add a touch of ghee or clarified butter after the dish is cooked to enhance the flavor.

3. Garam Masala powder can also be used to add extra flavor.

4. This dish will last in the fridge for 2-3 days.

5. If you don’t add potatoes, you can easily freeze this meal. I always do add potatoes so don’t usually freeze it.

6. Feel free to leave out coriander leaves if you don’t like this herb.

7. You can add some toasted slivered almonds to this dish, it adds a nice crunch.
