Gobi Kheema / Minced Cauliflower

Want to try something different than the usual Cauliflower dishes? Give this one a shot. It is not too time consuming to make and has a slightly different texture and taste.


Cauliflower 1
Onions 3
Tomatoes 3
Garlic pods 4
Green Peas 1/2 cup
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder 1 tsp
Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Cumin/Jeera 1 tsp
Curry Leaves few
Coriander Leaves to garnish

Oil and Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Chop or grate the cauliflower into fine pieces. Heat a little oil in a pan and add the cauliflower. Saute till it is almost cooked. Keep aside

2. In the meanwhile, chop the onions very fine. Heat oil in the same pan. Add the cumin and curry leaves. When it sizzles, add the onion. Saute till it is nicely browned.

3. Make a paste of the garlic and add to this. Saute for a minute or 2.

4. Make a paste of tomato and add to the pan. Add the peas as well. I used frozen peas. Saute till the tomato is fully absorbed and it is not watery. Add masala powders - chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, turmeric and salt. Mix well. Cook for a couple more minutes.

5. Add the cooked cauliflower and mix well. Cook for a few more minutes in low flame.

Switch off and garnish with coriander leaves.
