It’s the weekend again. Isn’t it amazing how the week felt so long and short at the same time? Anyhow, now that we are sliding into the weekend, there is absolutely no time to mull about things that were not in your control. It is time to unwind and let loose. If you are planning a road trip of sorts, have fun stopping by the best dhabas, and in case you have no plans at all, bring a bit of ‘Dhaba’ at your own home.  

Dhabas, for the uninitiated, are small, modest eateries. They are often located on either side of the highways but you can find many legendary dhabas inside your city too. Take for instance, Rajendar Da Dhaba and Bhape Da Hotel in Cannaught Place Delhi. You often do not find the best seating at these dhabas, but the tempting flavour of the dishes more than makes up for it. Whether is it the blend of masalas or the recipes, we do not quite know what exactly works in favour of the Dhaba food, but they do manage to make even something as simple as Aloo Gobhi, worth looking forward to. And guess what? We have a recipe that can easily help you mimic the ‘dhaba-style’ magic at home.  

How To Make Dhaba-Style Aloo Gobhi

To make this stellar recipe, wash and clean the cauliflower, cut them into medium-sized florets, and soak them in turmeric water for 15 mins. Wash it again with tap water. Peel potatoes and cut them into medium-thick slices. Heat oil, fry cauliflower and drain on a paper napkin. Then fry potatoes, and drain on a paper napkin. Then start with the masala, heat some oil in a pan, and add cumin and asafoetida. When the cumin starts to crackle, add ginger, sautee everything. Then add tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are soft. Then add all powdered spices, and throw in the potatoes and cauliflower. Cook till the potatoes and cauliflower florets are nicely coated in masalas. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with naan, paratha or roti.
