    the recipe for aloo gobi

    I’m assuming the ingredients described in the video clip are correct and the text recipe has a few omissions


    – the cumin seeds should be 1/4 tsp (text) or 1/2 tsp (video)
    – what kind of oil, olive oil okay or double the ghee okay and no oil?
    – “groung” masala powder is meant to be “garam” masala? unless it means “ground” masala (but since it is “powder” its not necessary to say “ground” so I suppose it should be “garam”)
    – but neither the text nor video say how much garam masala

    and the text show different ingredients (1/4 or 1/2 tsp cumin) onion or no onion

    1. admin

      Sorry for the inconvenience. Cumin Seeds should be 1/2 tsp
      Any kind of flavorless oil works for this recipe. I used peanut oil. Or use ghee if you like the flavor.
      It is the ground masala mixture.
