Cauliflower Curry

Cauliflower is rich in Folate, Vitamin C and Dietary Fibre. The main ingredients for this curry are as follow..
  1. Cauliflower - 1
  2. Tomato -1
  3. Onion - 1/2
  4. Oil - 1 tbsp
  5. Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  6. Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
  7. Red chillies -1
  8. Urid dhal - 1/2 tsp
  9. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  10. Salt to taste
  11. Curry Powder - 3/4 tsp (or acc to taste) ***
  12. Garam Masala Powder - 1/4 tsp
  13. Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
First, remove the florets from the cauliflower and put it in hot water for 2 mts. It will clean up the florets. In the mean time, chop the tomato and onion and keep it aside. Now take a microwave safe vessel, put the cauliflower in it, add 1/2 cup of water, also add salt and keep it in the microwave for 5 to 7 mts. Cauliflower is cooked now.

Now take a pan, pre heat the oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add urAd dhal, cumin seeds, red chillies and asafoetida powder to it and fry it for a minute. Now add onion and tomato one by one and saute for a minute. Now add the turmeric powder and curry powder to it and stir it for another 2 mts. Now add the cooked cauliflower to it and mix everything thoroughly. Close the pan for 2 mts and let everything cook. Now turn off the stove and garnish it with the coriander leaves.

*** - I usually make curry powder and use it for making side dishes like this. Instead we can always replace curry powder with coriander powder + Red chillies powder
