The cauliflower season has begun with a bang and wherever you look around it is raining cauliflower. I love it so much that I make a dish of it on alternate days. It only gets tastier when you combine it with the ever versatile potato. Here is a recipe that my whole family loves very much.
Potatoes – 3 (medium)
Cauliflower – ½ cup
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Ginger, cut into thin strips – 2 inch piece
Green chillies, slit – 3
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Coriander powder – 2 tsp
Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Oil – 1 ½ tbsp
Salt to taste
Fresh coriander leaves, chopped 2 tbsp
Peel the potatoes and cut into small chunks. Wash the cauliflower, remove stems and cut into small florets.
Heat oil in a kadai. Add cumin seeds, ginger, green chillies and sauté. Add potato pieces, cauliflower pieces and salt. Mix and add turmeric powder and mix well. Cover and cook on low heat.
The vegetables should cook in their own steam. Keep stirring from time to time (say about 10 min). Remove the cover and add coriander powder, red chilli powder and garam masala powder. Mix and cover again.
Cook till the vegetables are totally tender. Serve hot garnished with fresh coriander leaves. This goes well with sambar rice and rotis.
