Back when we used to make this on a regular basis, yes, we just used cabbage. Of course, that last time I saw this club make it, was sometime in 2002. They may have made it since then, as I moved away for a few years, but when I came back, this particular recipe had been filed away and forgotten except by a few of the older regulars.

Gobhi actually refers to cabbage as well though most of the time when people say it it refers to cauliflower. I think they are from the same family of vegies. So the name of the recipe isn't wrong :)

I asked my bf (as he grew up eating the stuff). If you use cabbage it's a different recipe altogether. He said Gobi is not cabbage and has never heard it referred to as that either....

It may depend on what area of India he is from as different parts of India have different names for things. Some of the various names for cabbage are bund gobhi, patha gobhi etc. Cauliflower specifically is phool gobhi (phool = flower).

We only use the name 'Aloo Gobhi' to refer to potatoes and cauliflower though when we say it. My only point is that gobhi can refer to cabbage too so technically the name isn't incorrect.
