Aloo Gobi (Potato and Cauliflower) Recipe In Slow Cooker

Aloo-Gobi or Potato and Cauliflower is Indian Vegetarian Recipe. This lightly spiced dry side dish is great with Naan, Roti or Rice. My son-in-law makes great Aloo-Gobi on stove-top. Below is a simple adaptation of same Aloo-Gobi recipe using Slow-Cooker or a Crockpot.

Some of the spices used in recipe below are traditional Indian spices and are all easily available in any Indian Grocery store. You can also purchase this Indian Spices Starter Kit which includes all the below listed spices and many more without worrying about significant investment.

  1. I'm missing some understanding of the instructions. You refer to a "potato and onion mixture from the previous step, but I don't see any such mixture. In step one there is an onion and cumin seed mixture. I see no prep for the potatoes.

    1. Hello Janet,

      Thank You for stopping by. What I meant was add Cauliflower and Potato to slow-cooker. Then add onion mixture that was created in step 1 and 2 into the slow-cooker as well. I have clarified the instructions further more. Hope it helps.

  2. Nice recipe, thanks for sharing! I like adding coriander seeds, rather than cumin. But, both work great. Cheers, R.M.

    1. Hello R.M,

      Thank You for stopping by. Coriander seeds sound interesting. I do use them in my cooking but haven't tried for Crockpot Aloo Gobi. May be I will try sometime. :)
