Phulkopir Chechki | Sada Aloo Phulkopir Tarkari

Gluten FreeVeganVegetarian

This simple aloo phulkopi tarkari is an easy Indian vegetarian recipe where cauliflower and potatoes are cooked in classic Bengali style. That is, with minimum spices. It pairs well with rotis, parathas and luchis or pooris. 

Phulkopi or Cauliflower gets me excited during the winters because of its versatility and the ease of cooking. This Aloo Phulkopir Tarkari known as Phulkopir Chechki is perhaps the easiest as it can go. It is light, cooks absolutely in the jiffy, and pairs so well with Luchis or Paranthas.

I mean, I cannot emphasize enough how easy this cauliflower recipe is. It is on my menu for weekday dinners, almost every week. So, imagine my surprise when I noticed that it has been missing from my Blog. Here’s my offering of (perhaps) one of the easiest cauliflower recipes in Bengali style.

Aloo Phulkopir tarkari with Parantha

Are you a fan of Aloo Chorchori? A classic Bengali-style Potato curry (more like a stew) often served with Luchis for an elaborate weekend breakfast. Elaborate? We are a family of bread & cornflakes eaters, so Luchi and tarkari is always an elaborate meal.

Coming back to my question. I asked because if you like Aloo Chorchori then I believe, there is a high chance that you will love Aloo Phulkopir Tarkari as well.

Aloo Phulkopir Torkari Ingredients

  • Green Chilies

Sada Aloo Phulkopi Tarkari Instructions

  • Heat Mustard Oil in a pan and temper it with Hing, Nigella seeds, and Green Chilies.
  • As they splutter, add the Cauliflower florets with stalks and Potatoes. Stir for a couple of minutes and then add salt and just enough water to cook the veggies.
  • Cover and cook till the cauliflower stalks and potatoes are tender and cooked.
  • If the water has dried up, then turn off the heat and serve. Otherwise, let it simmer till it dries up. Serve it hot.

Serving suggestions

I have grown up eating this chechki, mostly on saturday nights when my mom would serve it with fluffy luchis for a niramish (Bengali vegetarian) dinner. I, being a struggling calorie-conscious Bengali, turn to more humbling porotas. But trust me, it is equally delicious.
