Cauliflower With Potatoes (Phool gobi aur aloo ki bhaji) Review


4.5 stars (likely, if made with less salt) (on a 5 star scale)
p. 144

Solidly good but not great. The dish is definitely too salty, but otherwise I like the spicing. Also, it's easy to cook, even counting taking the time to roast and grind the cumin seeds.

Some notes on the ingredients:
  • I used four small potatoes instead of two medium ones.
  • I used half the recommended oil.
  • I ran out of ground coriander, thus using about 1/3 of a teaspoon rather than the 1/2 of a teaspoon the recipe calls for.
  • I used a whole jalapeno after seeding it (versus the 1/2 to 1 hot green chili called for by the recipe).

I've made this dish a few times while entertaining and everyone loves it. I usually don't follow MJ's advice on the amount of salt because I find that I don't need as much -- just add salt to taste.

I love MJ's book and I am cooking my way through it as well. Thanks for your site.
