Aloo gobhi translates to potato and cauliflower, a combination of vegetables that is extremely popular all over India. Every household has an aloo gobhi recipe and since it is so easy and fast to make, it is a family dinner staple, usually served with rice or homemade rotis (flatbread).

 

In our version of Aloo Gobhi, the spicy vegetable curry is transformed into a meal on the go, aka kati rolls. These burrito-esque wraps hail from Calcutta but street vendors all over India serve them. Tangy, spicy and filling, these rolls are sure to be an instant hit.

Stir in the cauliflower florets, diced potatoes, and the rest of the spices. Add chili powder to your spice preference. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of water over the vegetables, cover the pan and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn at the bottom.

Cook the aloo gobi until potatoes easily mash on the side of the pan. Tear the leaves of the cilantro and stir in with enough salt to taste. Remove from heat. While the vegetables cool for a few minutes, warm the flatbread on a pan or toaster oven with a few drops of oil on each side.

To build the kati rolls, smear a tablespoon of chutney in the center of each flatbread. Then add 2 spoons of the aloo gobi in the middle from top to bottom as you would a burrito.
