Simple and Easy Cauliflower Curry

Cauliflower is a vegetable which was never bought at our home. I tasted Cauliflower mostly as manchurian at restaurants. When I started staying with room mates, they used to make cauliflower almost every week. I learned up this simple and basic cauliflower curry from them. 

Cauliflower Curry or Gobi Masala:

1 cup Cauliflower florets
1 big Onion
1 Teaspoon Ginger-Garlic-Green chilly paste
2 Tomatoes
1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 - 3/4 Teaspoon Chilly powder
1/2 Teaspoon Garam Masala
1.5 Teaspoon Coriander Powder
1 Teaspoon Oil
1 Cinnamon
1 Cardamom
1 Clove


Step 1: Cutting

  • Cut Cauliflower into small florets, removing the stem.
  • Cut onion and tomatoes into dices.
Step 2:

Boil Cauliflower by adding turmeric and salt to it for around 5 - 10 min and keep aside after draining the water.

Step 3: (Optional)

Grind Ginger, Garlic and Green chilly into paste form. 

This step is optional. You can use ginger-garlic paste and crushed green chillies instead of ginger-garlic-green chilly paste.

Method of Preparing:
