Potatoes & Cauliflower are a dynamic duo which pair exceptionally well with another dynamic duo - Coriander & Cumin! Together these two duos make a hearty meal, also known through the popular Indian dish, Aloo Gobi.

Apart from the flavour they bring, one of the other reasons the Cumin and Coriander pair so well with the Potatoes & Cauliflower is that they help you digest these heavy vegetables better.

This recipe is packed with so much flavour - you can add some chilli powder or Garam Masala for extra depth and spiciness.
