Alo Gobi - One Pot Dish

Alo Gobi - One Pot Dish

Who does not like one pot dish? I learnt cooking Alo Gobi in this style from my hubby. My mom calls it Alo Gobi Cooked in Bachelor style. Whatever it is called as , it is time saver as it is cooked in pressure cooker and cabbage can be chopped little bigger than usual. Whenever my Servant Maid announces that she won't be in for work then I prefer to do this as I will have less vessel to wash the next day.

Cabbage - 2 Cups (Washed and roughly chopped)
Potatoes - 1/2 cup (Peeled and cubed)
Onion - 1 (Medium, Chopped)
Tomato - 1 (Medium , Chopped)
Jeera - 1 teaspoon
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/4 teaspoon
Chilly Powder - 1 Tablespoon
Turmeric Powder - Pinch
Salt and Oil.


  • Heat some oil in a pressure cooker. 
  • Once oil is heated, add Jeera and add onion once the Jeera splutters.
  • After 2 minutes, add the tomatoes and cook till the tomato is done.
  • Then add GG paste,turmeric powder,chilly powder and cook for a minute.
  • Then add the potatoes and Cabbage and stir it and cook for a minute.
  • Add enough water and salt and put the lid and whistle.
  • Cook for 3 whistles on Medium flame.
  • Allow it to cool for sometime and serve with rice or roti.


  • Don't worry whether it will become very mushy mushy as we are cooking it in pressure cooker.If you cut the Cabbage roughly and not very fine then the end result will be fantastic.
  • The trick of this dish is not to cut the Cabbage too well.
