This recipe for Sheet Pan Aloo Gobi takes one of my favourite Indian vegetarian dishes and makes it super fast and easy to prepare. Usually when you make this nicely spiced potato and cauliflower classic, you are fussing a bit around the pot on the stove as you wait for one ingredient to cook before adding another.
Preparing the vegetables and then sliding the whole bundle onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and popping it in the oven takes all that pot watching out of the equation. You can simply set a timer and forget about it as you a) sip on something cool in the backyard or b) prep the rest of your dinner.
The results are intensely flavourful. This is because the roasting brings out the natural sugars of the vegetables while also applying enough heat so the spices will release the flavours from their essential oils. I love to serve this with a cool raita and meats off the grill any time of year but especially in summer. It should really be called Aloo Gobble at my house!Print
