Aloo Gobi is a classic Indian dish of potatoes and cauliflower. In this Canadian version inspired by Anita Stewart we swap in cabbage instead of cauliflower, but both can be called gobi! Since I had purple cabbage on hand that’s what I used but any cabbage will do. Either way it’s a one pot, super simple, comforting dish that’s full of flavour and ready in 30 minutes flat. Serve it as a side dish with a slice of lean meat, chicken, fish or tofu. Scroll on for step by step on how to make it.
