Piri Piri Cabbage and Potatoes. Patta-Gobi Aloo. Vegan Glutenfree Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
Patta-Gobhi is Cabbage and Gobhi is Cauliflower. Aloo is potato. So this is Spicy Cabbage and potatoes.

Piri piri or peri peri or pili pili is a red hot African Red Chili. The Piri piri blend used in this recipe is from World Spice market near Pike Market in Seattle. The blend has the African Red Chili, Pequin and Ancho chiles, dried tomato and lemon. When I say it is hot, it is hot!


Just a little bit goes a long way in adding the heat and the flavor to the dish. Use according to taste:) The blend makes a great addition to anything roasted.. cauliflower, tempeh and the lot and adds an amazing punch to the everyday Daal stews too.




Is it just me, or there is something in the air this month. Crazy congestion, headaches and horrible balance, thy name in January 2013. When I say balance, I mean the capability of the brain to match all signals from the eyes, legs, skin and so on to tell me where everything is, so i can walk. If you see someone walking real slow in Seattle, and stopping, leaning on one side or stomping her feet, that would be me. Trying to get the feedback from my feet communicated to my brain. uhhh. I think it is all because I skipped on my anulom vilom(breathing exercises) all December..

  4. One of my biggest veggie complaints is the uninspiring cabbage dishes us Indians have! I dont mind cabbage, but the same stir fry with one or two spice variations bores me. And here you are adding a brand new flavour profile to the patta gobhi! :D I dont know if we get good piri-piri in India, but I'm sure gonna try and source some soon and give this dish a shot :)

  5. I just haven't been going outside as much as possible. Not only do we have heaps of snow, but Salt Lake City has some of the worst air quality in the nation right now. I could use a big plate of this to warm me up right now. We need warmer weather girl :)

  8. this is what you meant by balance. i thought something else to do with left brain and right brain. i have piri piri chilies and they are way too hot. would experiment them adding to dal or sabzis. something which i have never done.

  9. Your balance might be playing you up, but at least the dish looks perfectly balanced. Cabbage and potato were made to go together - extra bonus points for anything you can wander off and read a book for a bit in the middle. Interesting that mention kofta - have you got a recipe?
