Cauliflower Stir Fry
Cauliflower – 1 small
Green Chilies – 2 slit
Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
Chili Powder – 1 tablespoon
Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon
Garam masala powder – 1/4 teaspoon
Yogurt – 1/4 cup
Dry Methi leaves – 2 pinch
Cumin seeds – 1/4 teaspoon
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Coriander leaves – a hand full chopped
Salt to taste
Oil/butter – 3-4 tablespoons
How to :
Wash the cauliflower, blanch the cauliflower by putting it in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes. Pat dry with a kitchen towel and divide into florets.
Prepare the masala paste by mixing together the ginger garlic paste, chili powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, yogurt, salt and dry methi leaves in a non reactive bowl large enough to accommodate the cauliflower florets.
Toss the cauliflower in the masala paste and leave to marinate overnight or for a minimum of one hour.
Heat a kadai, preferably non stick one if you want to use less oil. Heat oil, splutter cumin seeds, then add green chilies and curry leaves to the pan, add the cauliflower and stir fry on medium heat for 10-15 minutes, till the cauliflower is tender and all the water has been absorbed. Cook till cauliflower turns golden brown. Add the chopped coriander leaves and toss. Remove from flame, serve hot with rice or chapati.
