Alu Gobi...South Indian Style

  • Potato (peeled and cut into medium sized cubes)
  • Cauliflower (stripped to medium sized branches)
  • Coriander a.k.a cilantro
  • Garlic 6-8 cloves
  • Grated coconut or decicated coconut powder
  • Green chilies

Grind grated coconut, garlic, coriander and green chilies into a fine paste. Boil potatoes with little water and when it's half cooked, add the cauliflower and the paste. Add salt and cook till the vegetables are done. The colour of the dish is dashing green due to the coriander and goes well with chapatis or tortillas. A personal favorite of mine which I learnt from my mother. The best part of the dish is it's easy to make, contains no oil, looks and tastes great.
