Aloo Gobi |

Indian cuisine is my all-time favorite. Creamy curries, aromatic seasonings, spicy meats offset with cooling yogurt-based sauces and desserts… oh my, I’m in heaven at the thought. Aloo Gobi is a dish traditionally made with potatoes, tomatoes, and cauliflower in a rich blend of mostly seed-based seasonings. By subbing taro, carrots, and safe spices, my autoimmune protocol version is creamy, smells incredible, and is every bit as delicious and comforting as the traditional dish, even if it doesn’t boast quite the same amount of heat. Plus, isn’t it pretty? I love the vibrant colors in this dish.

    I never really tried Indian cuisine! Your dish does look indeed so colorful and yummy 🙂 You convinced me to give it a go!

    what would be a good replacement for taro root?? do you think something like a turnip or a rutabaga would work well?? or maybe parsnips? This looks so delicious. I used to love making aloo gobi. I also love ethiopian atkilt, I think they’re kinda similar. I need to figure out how to make it aip. 🙂

    • Christina Feindel says

      Turnip should work out fine.

      • Shi Anne Breedlove says

        Oh – just saw your post. I have watermelon turnip from my last share. It’s a bit hot (which I like) & very colorful. I could sub this instead of the taro – thanks!

    • Rima Papaly says

      Cassava also works pretty well here instead of taro root but you need to cook in water till it is tender

  • Shi Anne Breedlove says

    This looks great! I just need to get the taro, & I will make it tonight. I really miss spicy food & can’t wait to try this. Thanks!!

  • Anne says

    How would this be without the cilantro? I’m one of those people for whom cilantro just doesn’t taste… right 😉 Should I substitute parsley for the cilantro, or something else? Thank you!

  • E says

    Thank you so much for the recipe. I really love Indian food, and have not had it in quite some time since the spice conflict with AIP. It was just what I needed to fill the void!

  • Kirsty says

    Looks great, do you think anything could replace the cauliflower? I cannot tolerate it? Thank you

    It’s Really too bad you don’t have time to answer questions. It would have been really helpful as a newby to AIP and AIP recipes. Seemed like a good website.
    It’s interesting that most blogs and websites I visit the authors have the same problem. But they certainly seem to have plenty of time to write endlessly about themselves. Sad.
    Makes one wonder how much they truly want to help others versus seeking attention. It certainly seems to me its the latter that motivates most. Just saying 🙂
