Lately, I’ve been thinking of including some regular food recipes in my blog……maybe stuff that you would make on a regular day. And so, this dish is something that I oft make on regular dinner nights….when I am not in any mood to try out an exotic dish!
Now, why did I choose a Cauliflower dish…..you may ask. Simply because I love that vegetable and I love this dish in particular. 🙂 Did you know that Cauliflower is rich in Vit. C and also a high protein veggie? Flip side is that its apparently high in sugar!
This is a no onion dish and because of the combination of tomatoes and certain spices, it tends to be on the tangy side. The cauliflower florets are deep fried and they add crunch to the dish. So here goes the recipe.
1 medium cauliflower
2 large tomatoes diced small
2 green chillies chopped
1 tbsp ginger- garlic paste
1 tbsp anardaana powder (dried pomegranate powder)
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin powder (slightly roasted)
1 tbsp kasoorie methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
Salt to taste
Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Deep fry in some oil. Lay the deep fried florets on some kitchen towel to soak up the excess oil. (If you are a cauliflower lover like me…..you may be tempted to eat the deep fried florets….please do not…..best bet would be to keep them away from your line of vision!!)
Add a bit of the oil used for deep frying to a pan. Add the ginger garlic paste, tomatoes and green chillies and fry for about 3-4 minutes on a low flame. Take all the spice powders (but not the kasoorie methi/dried fenugreek leaves) in a small bowl and add just enough water to make it a loose paste. Add this to the pan and fry well. Now add the cauliflower florets and toss to coat well. Take off the flame and add the kasoorie methi and mix well.
Your dish is ready!!
