Instant Pot Potato cauliflower curry is delicious and very easy to make. Makes a super side dish for rice, roti, tortillas etc. You can make this curry dry or with gravy but either way its delicious. 

Aloo gobhi is very famous is in India, especially in North India. It is mildly spiced so that kids can also enjoy it. This makes excellent choice for lunch box as well. 

This recipe is vegan but ofcourse you can add butter/ghee instead of oil if you want. 

Most people like their aloo gobhi dry but in my home, especially my husband prefers the gravy version. So I made this curry with gravy but there are instructions in the recipe box to make it dry. So many might not like my version of making aloo gobhi on the wet side but like I said you can make it dry as well.
