Aloo Gobi Sunday

Aloo Gobi (Potato Cauliflower Curry) with Homemade Yogurt "Cheese" and Mango Pickle

I was inspired to have this today by a recent post by Stash regarding the glories of the potato.

This isn't a dish I eat very often, since I'm somewhat averse to cauliflower; among the few forms I enjoy it in are this curry and raw. I don't usually obsess over every gram of fat, but lately I find myself worrying just because there are a few extra inches that refuse to budge. This dinner could have been pretty low cal and low fat, but a dollop of ghee and a couple dollops of that whole-milk yogurt cheese just felt in order.

Fat is where it's at, baby. :D

Re cauliflower -- try it roasted. Just like french fries, only better.

When are you coming over for dinner?

I knew there was a post I forgot to reply to! Curry hides a multitude of sins. ;-)

I prefer Aloo over Gobi, to be honest - except fried. But I'll try Stash' suggestion too. (When I get a frier.)

Have you seen Bend it like Beckham? One of the extras on my DVD is the director, her Mum and an Auntie cooking Aloo Gobi.

Last Thursday I tried Kulfi for the first time. It's like ice-cream, but it's not. It's less fluffy and usually has chopped nuts (pistacchios) and rose flavour.
