    This is amazing! I just made a very similar cauliflower and potato curry — I love the two together. I roasted an oven full of veggies, cauliflower and potatoes included, so I designed a curry from those, but I will try your frying method next time. I added peas to mine — must have something green in all that white stuff, don’t you think? My picky husband loved it!

    Gypsy gal, thanks for loving the recipe. Yes, peas are often added to this dish thesedays, but the original East-Indian version is without it in this dry version. There is another curry similar to this which is called alu-phulkopir dalna, which is often cooked with peas too!

    Junia, thanks for your comments. Much appreciated!

    Kim, as you mentioned, your comment didn’t appear here. But I received your beutiful comment by e-mail and really thanks for letting me know about your views!

    I have never cooked Indian food before, but recently bought some curry powder and decided I was going to give it a try. I think this will be my first attempt. 2 vegetables I like and the ingredient isn’t filled with things I have to go buy.

    Purabi, Indian cuisine is something I enjoy to bits. Whether Nothern or Southern. This is not only healthy and bursting with flavours too. I could have this with chapati, or with rice. YUmmm.. thanks for buzzing me over at Foodbuzz. It’s been a while, and I will continue to read your lovely recipes from a far. Hugs, Jo

    This is stunning and I appreciate the tips and tricks. I realized that authentic Indian food doesn’t use curry powder…I suspect that may be more of an Americanized thing.

    Which works out well for me, because I’m allergic to cinnamon which is in most curry powders, and I can omit if I need to in authentic recipes.

    As always – a great read, recipe and post! Thanks, Purabi….. BTW – I’m following you on Google Follower – I don’t know why I wasn’t before!

    I love how you explain everything so well in such detail. Since cauliflower doesn’t have a lot of flavor at least to me, this sounds great and totally different than any I’ve had before. Sounds yummy and healthy!

    I love curry based dishes, but I’m too afraid to cook them on my own. This encourages me to give it a whirl! ~Megan

    I adore cauliflower – one of the most underrated veggies – and these spices are of course a wonderful way to make it sing!

    I also like your cooking method for the vegetables — the steam makes all the difference!

    Potato-cauliflower curry looks absolutely delicious…cooked to perfection…mouthwatering pics…now I know why my potato/cauliflower curry doesn’t turn out that way :).

    I totally agree about taking much needed time to cook…adding seasonings/spices in a certain order…do play a vital role in the outcome…in south indian cooking too…
    you made me a follower now :).

    I’m slowly coming around to cauliflower after years of finding it so boring. I guess I only ever had it just boiled – nothing else. My wife just LOVES cauliflower with curry taste so I think I’ll save this dish to make her when I do something to make her mad 😉

    This dish has everything I like – potatoes, cauliflowers, and curry flavor! I think I need to make it more mild in terms of spice level though. Looks so yummy Purabi! 🙂

    Cauliflower and potato curry is such a great combination. Your detailed explanations are superb. Since the cauliflower takes less time to cook, do you ever add the cauliflower to the potatoes when the potatoes are partially cooked, or do you just find it easier to cook them separately? Great recipe – thanks.

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments. Kitchen Riffs, yes, you can definitely add the cauliflower when potatoes are partially cooked (which is what I actually do when I am in a hurry). But if you fry the cauliflower separately, the florets are absolutely unbroken. Either way is fine!

    […] home excludes the use of onion and garlic. But it is new year after all. So I made some parathas, potato-cauliflower curry, green mango chutney and my special paneer (Indian cottage cheese) curry: all made without using […]
