Cauliflower and fresh green peas are flooding the markets. Summer is coming close, so I am trying my maximum to consume all the wonderful varieties available 😉
How important are vegetables in our diet, I needn’t go into that. North India is well known for innumerable cauliflower recipes from stir fries, gravies to stuffed flat breads.
Presenting here is Gobhi -matar sabji / Cauliflower -peas stir fry from the Winter Platter 4 – Republic Day special.
Here’s what I did………..
2 cups – cauliflower florets
1/4 cup – shelled peas
1 nos – finely chopped green chili
1/4 tsp – grated ginger
1/4 tsp – tumeric powder
1 tsp – oil
pinch of cumin seeds
pinch of garam masala (Indian spice mix)
salt to taste
Wash the cauliflower florets, keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds. Once they splutter add the grated ginger and cauliflower florets. Saute for 2-3 mins. Add the peas, chopped green chili and tumeric powder. Give all a good stir and lower the heat. Season with salt. Cover and cook till the florets and peas are tender.
Increase the flame, sprinkle the garam masala. Toss the vegetables for a few mins till remanent moisture dries and vegetables are crunchy and crispy. Take it off fire.
Serve with rice, chapati or paranthas.
Happy cooking !! 🙂
Cheers !! 😀
