Recipe Notes

1.Always cook potatoes till they are half done before adding cauliflower florets since both veggies have different cooking times.

2.Cauliflower tends to cook very quickly, so use larger pieces in this recipe.

3.Cook on low pressure for 2 minutes followed by a Quick Pressure Release (QR) when using Instant Pot.

4.If you have a 8 qt or newer version of instant pot, they are prone to giving the BURN message so add extra 1/4 cup water. It has a bigger surface area and might need more water for the pressure to build in.Note i have not tested on 8qt.

5.You can make this aloo gobi without onions and garlic as well.

6.Heavy Bottom Pan or skillet with lid would work best to make aloo gobi for stove top version.

6.You can increase heat by adding 1/2 teaspoon more of red chilli powder.

7.You can add amchur powder (dry mango powder) instead of Lime juice.

8.I have prepared this dish in my electric pressure cooker, Instant Pot DUO60 6 QT
