Simple Cauliflower(Gobi) Curry

Print Friendly and PDF
Sometimes a simple meal is more satisfying than an elaborate one.Atleast twice a week I like to have a very simple meal in order to ease my work and enjoy that simple and satisfying meal.This cauliflower curry comes in that category as it is not only simple to make but also forms a complete satisfying meal when served with rasam and papad with hot steaming rice or with roti and kadhi as I did.
Ingredients:
1 medium cauliflower,cut into florets
1 big onion,roughly chopped
1 big tomato,finely chopped
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tbsp chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
5-6 curry leaves,chopped
1 tbsp chopped coriander
salt to taste
oil
Method:
  • Drop the cauliflower florets in salted warm water and add haldi to it and keep it for 8-10 mins.
  • Heat oil in a kadai,crackle mustard seeds and add chana dal,urad dal and fry until red in color.Add chopped curry leaves and sliced onions and cook until the onions are translucent.
  • Now add cauliflower florets and fry for 2-3 mins.Cover the kadai with a deep bottomed plate and pour water over it.Let it steam cook on a low flame for 10-12 mins by stirring it in between until the florets are soft and tender.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and salt to it and again steam cook for 4-5 mins until the tomatoes are mashed.
  • Add coriander powder and chili powder and give a proper stir.Add coriander to it just before removing from the fire and mix.
Serve it hot with rice,rasam,pickle and papad or serve it with chapathy/roti and simple dal.

Variations:
  • You can even add sambar powder instead of red chilli powder in the recipe for a variation.
  • You can add peas or potatoes along with gobi in the recipe.
  • Add Garam masala for different flavor.

Ya, I do agree, for everyday cooking I also indulge into very simple subzis and dal. Keeps the system functioning properly.
Nice and simple subzi.
