Gobhi Masala

Here's a lovely cauliflower recipe I picked up from - my favorite online destination for any vegetarian recipe.

Main ingredients:

2  cups chopped cauliflower/gobi
1 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp turmeric powder/haldi
½ tsp red chili powder/lal mirch powder
1 tsp coriander powder/dhania powder (optional)
½ tsp garam masala powder
3 cups water for blanching cauliflower
½ to 1 tsp kasuri methi/dry fenugreek leaves, crushed
few coriander leaves/dhania patta for garnishing

    Grind to paste

1 large onion
1 large tomato
½ inch ginger
2-3 garlic


Firstly remove the gobi/cauliflower florets. Wash them in running water. Boil 3 cups of water in a pan with salt. Add the gobi/cauliflower florets in the salted water and cook for 10 minutes till the cauliflower is just cooked. Don’t let it get too mushy.

Make a smooth paste in a blender with the onion, tomato, ginger and garlic. No need to add water while making the paste.

Heat oil in a pan or kadai. Add cumin seeds.

When they start spluttering, add the ground paste and stir.

Add all the spice powders one by one.

Keep it covered and on a simmer for a few minutes till the oil leaves the sides of the paste.

Add the chopped cauliflower, required quantity of water, salt and  stir.

Cover and cook till the cauliflower is cooked and tender. Lastly add crushed kasuri methi and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Stir in chopped coriander leaves or garnish.

Serve hot with rotis, naan or steamed rice or jeera rice.
