Aloo Gobi Masala – Cauliflower and Potato Curry
This Cauliflower and Potato Curry dish is perfect for a weeknight dinner! It’s loaded with delicious spices and comes together so easily!
Friends. You know that another curry recipe was coming, right? After how much I saw that you guys loved my Coconut Chickpea Curry, I knew I had to keep these curry recipes coming. There’s my Thai Green Curry, my Red Lentil Curry and even my Coconut Curry Soup (with Noodles). Now finally – this Cauliflower and Potato Curry. This is such an amazing, mouthwatering and comforting curry that you’ll be making it over and over again.
I wanted to try this recipe after the idea for cauliflower curry popped up into my head over a year ago. Yes, that’s how long I’ve been sitting on this. Now I’m really happy that I did – because I found out about Aloo Gobi Masala which uses potatoes too, and I was amazed by the combination.
I can’t guaranteed that this Cauliflower and Potato Curry is as authentic as traditional Aloo Gobi Masala, but I really did my best to honour it. Think creamy, deliciously seasoned and loaded with so much flavour. The cauliflower and potatoes soak the sauce right up and are the perfect vessel for it. I cook the cauliflower and potatoes partially first, until the potatoes start to crisp up. It adds such a beautiful texture to the dish which I am in love with.
This is delicious served alongside rice, naan bread and any other side dishes to swipe up extra sauce.
I switched mine up a bit and added in spinach – because I love adding greens into my curry dishes. It added a beautiful texture, plus a colour pop that I really loved.
Anyway, I hope you try this Cauliflower and Potato Curry and really enjoy it. Let me know – what’s your favourite curry? Eat up and enjoy friends!
Cauliflower and Potato Curry (Aloo Gobi Masala)
- 1 medium head cauliflower, de-stemmed and florets broken up
- 2 cups Irish potatoes, cubed
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- ½ red onion, chopped
- 6 medium, 14 ounces tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons minced ginger
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon garam masala
- 3 tablespoons red curry paste
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- ¾ cup coconut milk, I used from the can, you can use can or box
- Salt and pepper to taste
- squeeze of juice of ½ lime
- In a large pot over medium high heat, add a tablespoon of the coconut oil.
- Add in the cauliflower florets and the potatoes and stir together to cook down and crisp up, for about 10-12 minutes. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.
- While that's cooking, in a another pan, add the other tablespoon of coconut oil. Add in the onions and tomatoes. Grind some sea salt and ground black pepper over the mixture and stir together. Lower heat to medium and allow to cook down until juices of the tomatoes are naturally released and onions are soft, about 10 minutes.
- Add in the ginger, garlic, garam masala, red curry paste and curry powder. Stir to combine.
- Add in the coconut milk and stir again. Add in the cauliflower florets and the potatoes here from the first pan. Bring the curry to a boil, and then reduce immediately to medium-low so that the mixture continues to simmer for 5 more minutes.
- Taste the curry and season with salt and pepper if you desire. If you want more liquid/gravy, add up to another ½ cup of coconut milk depending on the amount you want. Remove the curry from the heat and squeeze a lime lightly over the top of the curry, stirring to combine. Don't skip this step!! Allow to cool slightly and then serve. Enjoy!

I would like to know, if I could also use sweet potatoes instead of the „normal“ potatoes?
Thanks a lot for your inspiring recipes and ideas 🙂
a lot of sunshine for you,
Hi Alina thank you so much for reading! You can definitely use sweet potatoes instead. I hope this helps!
Made this recipe some time ago: a winner! Spicy, flavorful; overall just delicious! I will definitely cook this again.
Hi, Jessica. I have been meaning to tell you I made this recipe. It was delicious! Aloo Gobi has been my favorite Indian food dish for years now. I was so excited to make it at home. I cannot wait to make it again. It was very tasty and easy to make. Thank you!
I tried many vegetarian curry recipes and this one is the first one that really satisfied me. So so flavourful and easy to make. Thanks, Jessica!!
Hi Jessica, when you say red curry paste, do you mean Thai red curry paste or something different? I don’t know of an Indian curry paste describe as red. Just want to make sure I use the right thing because it looks so delicious and I’ve really enjoyed some of your the other recipes I’ve tried. I can’t wait to taste it. Thanks
Hi, Reem thank you so much for reading! Yes, we mean Thai red curry paste. I hope this helps!
I have made this recipe twice now, and I really enjoy it a lot. I have tried adding in Spinach toward the end like Jessica mentions, just stirring in to wilt, and I like the extra nutrition that adds. I also totally agree, the squeeze of lime at the end is really key! Totally changes things up. Will definitely be making again, although I need to try some other ones on the site first 🙂
Thank you so much Jess! We’re so happy that you like it and the recipe works for you!
Hi Jessica, can this recipe be made ahead of time or is it best to make just before serving?
Hi Sandra thank you so much for reading! You can definitely make it ahead of time.
Made this tonight and it’s excellent! Thank you!
Thanks so much!
This was soooooo yummy. Very flavorful and satisfying- I threw some fresh micro greens and scallions on top were served and it was so yummy!
