Don’t we all love winters? No sweating, No relying on air conditioning for a decent night’s sleep and no power cuts to endure. I for one definitely love winters more than summers. Beautiful weather ( if sun god bless us with his presence ;-)), juicy fruits and plentiful of green vegetables to choose from.

Aloo gobi ki sabji is a big hit in most of Indian homes in winters. We are no different so this vegetable preference wise ranks quite high in our house. But, I am sad to say this, only in adults. My kids for some reason did not like to eat either of the gobis.

Roasted aloo gobi ki sabji is a healthier version of fried aloo gobi ki sabji. One day my elder son ate fried aloo gobi ki sabji at my sister’s home. He absolutely loved it. And he promised me if I make fried aloo gobi ki sabji he will eat it. And he kept his promise. Only problem is we were not comfortable with having fried aloo gobi very often. So after trying baked potatoes for french fries in oven I tried baking aloo gobi in it too. It was a hit. Even my younger son loved it.

I have roasted aloo gobi in oven and tandoor both. Though results were satisfactory in both, in tandoor process takes less time. If you do not have tandoor at home make this in oven.

Break the florets from the gobi. Cut into half vertically. I always soak gobhi florets in water for some time before cooking.
Peel wash and cut the potatoes into wedges. Prick wedges with a fork. Toss the vegetables in olive oil and salt.

Preheat the tandoor. Spread vegetables evenly on the tandoor plate and roast for 10 miuntes on both. Roast for 10 more minutes on top and lastly 5 minutes on bottom. This time may vary for different tandoors so keep on checking your vegetables while they are roasting.

If you are using oven keep the vegetables on top rack at 200 C and follow the same processs.
