  7. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 4 minutes on High pressure.
  8. Once the cooking cycle has completed, allow pressure to release naturally.
Mealthy Tip

When preparing the vegetables, cut the cauliflower florets slightly bigger than the potatoes. That way, they will cook in roughly the same time, rather than overcooking and becoming too soft before the potatoes are done. Turmeric adds the distinctive yellow hue to this dish.

I feel bad, but I made this with broccoli instead of cauliflower. It was still delicous. Great seasoning. But I wish I had had some cauliflower on hand. Next time!

I had not had aloo gobi in so long, that's when I found this recipe I had to try it! I am obsessed! There are so many different flavors in this dish, and they all work perfectly together. Perfect amount of spice, it was incredible. It was also incredibly easy in my pressure cooker!

This is the perfect aloo gobi recipe! I'm not a vegetarian, but I'm a huge fan of Indian cuisine. The vegetables soak up all the cumin, ginger, and garlic spices, for a truly fragrant and flavorful dish. I'm truly convinced that this pressure cooker version is by far the best I've ever had. It also works well as a side dish or a starter.

Not a vegetarian but really loved this dish, it's very flavorful and aromatic. Could not get my kids to eat it, but my husband and I both loved it. The cooking time is really short and overall its an effortless dish.

Great tip for cutting the cauliflower into larger florets. I usually buy precut bags of cauliflower, but opted for an entire head for this recipe so that I could cut the florets myself. This recipe turned out really good.

Add a tap of sugar and cook for 2 min on high and it’s just perfect! Will definitely make it again.
