Aloo Fulkopi Bhaja / Stir Fried Potato and Cauliflower

There are some recipes that never get old and forgotten. There are some staple potato dishes which are always dished out with rotis or parathas as breakfast or an evening snack or just making a lunch box. In short they are a great companion for making a light meal and also good option if you are thinking of quick cooking. Also this Aloo Fulkopi Bhaja goes so well with plain rice and daal. For me its a match made in heaven.:):)
So..lets cook Aloo Fulkopi Bhaja / Stir Fried Potato and Cauliflower

Aloo Fulkopi Bhaja
Serves 3/4

  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1/2 small cauliflower - cut into small florets
  • 1/2 onion - chopped
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Salt
  • Blanch the cauliflower flowers in boiling water for 10 minutes.
  • Parboil the potatoes.
  • Heat oil in a pan and throw in the cumin seeds.
  • When they start spluttering add the chopped onions.
  • Sauté until the onions are brown.
  • Now add the potatoes and cauliflower florets and peas.

  • Stir fry until the potatoes are brown from both the sides and cooked and the cauliflower florets become cooked and tender.
  • I do not add water to this. If you see your dish will is sticking to the pan or kadai,  add a dash of water.
  • When they are cooked add salt.
  • I do not add salt in the beginning because that makes them tender. Whereas I like them a little crisp.
  • Serve hot with roti/paratha.:)
