Aloo Gobi

I love love loooooove Indian food, but have never tried to make it myself because honestly, it's a bit intimidating. So many spices, almost all of which I am not familiar with at all. But I've always wanted to learn.

Well, I finally got around to facing my fears and made a pretty darn good Indian feast. Hopefully I'll be able to post the other dishes I made in a timely manner, but for now, let's start with aloo gobi.

Just toasting the spices with the onion smelled sooo good. I'm definitely going to be attempting more Indian dishes in the future!

I don't like cauliflower, but I love Indian food. I wonder if I'd like this.

Hmmm. It still has a decently strong cauliflower flavor, even with all the spices, so I'm not sure if you'd like it. It doesn't hurt to try it though =)
