Spicy_Cauliflower_Potato_Aloo_Gobi_Fry_1Cauliflower and potato are the best combo to make a side dish more popular among guests. Here is Spicy Cauliflower and Potato (Aloo Gobi) Fry, a different stir fry to match as a side dish to all Indian food.

Cauliflower is known as ‘phool gobi’ and potato is known as ‘aloo’ in Hindi.

I used cauliflower florets more, to make this dish tasty and attractive.
