Chiman's Aloo Gobi

Chiman's Aloo Gobi

I was always under the impression that all Aloo Gobi’s are pretty much the same, so I had not rushed to review the pack I had from Chiman’s and now I wish I had, it was probably the best Aloo Gobi spice mix I have ever used and best of all I got to make it myself. Well that is I followed the instructions on the packet.

Chiman’s set-up in 1990 by Chimanlal Agarwal, it is now by run by Sally and Danny Agarwal they have 29 different blends all of which we are kean to try, and some of which are also available certified organic by the Soil Association.

 Ingredients: Sea Salt, Garam Masala, Cumin, Coriander, Turmeric, Fennel Seed, Fenugreek, Black Pepper Chilli.

The spice mix comes in a small card sleeve that  describes the product and gives a easy to follow recipe:-

  • 1 Pack Chiman’s Aloo Gobi
  • 1 Red Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Medium Potatoes, peeled & Cut into 3cm Cubes
  • 2-3 Cloves garlic, crushed
  • 900g/2lbs Cauliflower, broken into florets.
  • 45ml/3 tbsps Vegetable Oil
  • Fresh Coriander to garnish
  1. Cook the florets in a little boiling water for 2-3 minutes, Separately cook potato cubes until just soft.
  2. Using a wok or large, heavy pan, heat oil until just smoking, add spices, stirring continuously for 30 seconds or until they sizzle. Remove from heat.
  3. Add onion and garlic and mix well. Stir fry for 2 minutes on a low heat. Add Cauliflower and potato, coat well cook 2-3 minutes, Add 30ml/2 tbsps water, cover pan and steam vegetables until tender.
  4. Serve, garnished with fresh chopped coriander.

I have cooked a few Aloo Gobi’s in the past from spice mixes and even made my own, but non of them were as tasty as this one, the balance for me was just about perfect. I would still taste the Cauliflower and Potato and enjoy the spices, we had it as part of a family meal and everyone commented on how good it was.

You can order this online at www.chimans.co.uk  for just £1.70 a long with lots of other spice mixes, we hope to have some more to review very soon.
