Aloo gobi or Alugadde hookosu gojju recipe

Aloo gobi or alugadde hookosu gojju recipe explained with step by step pictures. Aloo gobi curry or alugadde hookosu gojju goes well with chapathi or roti. This is a very simple curry recipe prepared using potato, cauliflower, fresh green peas, tomato, onion, ginger, garlic and spices. You can serve this aloo gobi or alugadde hookosu gojju with jowar roti (jolada rotti) or chapathi.

I am posting this recipe upon request from our valuable readers. Actually when they requested the recipe, I realised that I have not posted any cauliflower recipes. Actually in Karnataka hookosu or cauliflower is used in vegetable pulav and mixed veg sagu. So I thought I will post one simple and tasty curry recipe. Apart from this you can use gobi or cauliflower in gobi manchurian and bajji recipes. I have referred this blog for the recipe but I have done some changes as per my taste.

I have posted many aloo or potato recipes on this website like potato-onion sambar, potato mosaru bajji, potato palya and sagu, potato paratha, potato bonda and aloo-carrot paratha recipes.
