Potato and Cauliflower Stir-Fry (Aloo Gobi)

These vegetables are shallow fried in oil and slowly, steam cooked, until they are ready. Please do not be tempted to flood the pot with water otherwise you will not get the result intended.  There are many Aloo-Gobi recipes and every cook has their own way of doing it. I tried this one, and really loved the result. I highly recommend you watch the video even though it’s not in English. There are subtitles.

Please watch the video before cooking. I have adjusted slightly, to suit me. I didn’t understand a word…I just read the subtitles
