Aloo gobhi is a classic in Indian cooking. But our recipe adds an Ayurvedic twist to the classic. Not only is it delicious, but it also uses some of the main spices in Ayurvedic cooking and ensures that it balances all the six rasas (tastes): sweet, salty, sour, bitter, astringent, and pungent.

Benefits of Ayurvedic Aloo Gobhi

The spices used in this flavorful recipe are the staples of classic Ayurvedic cooking since they aid digestion and have many healing benefits.

  • Jeera cleanses and helps metabolise and assimilate sugar.

  • Rai breaks down of sugars and fats and also acts as a decongestant for stomach and lungs.

  • Hing dispels gas, cleanses the digestive tract, and eliminates ama (toxins).

  • Heat a deep-dish frying pan on medium and add 3 tablespoons of sunflower oil.

  • Once the oil is heated, add ½ tsp jeera (cumin seeds), 1 tsp rai (mustard seeds), and a pinch of hing.
