  9. Wiw this looks creamy and delicious.
    My hubby and daughter don't like cauliflower so i think i will just make it with peas alone

  10. wow, korma is just fabulous. I love the ingredients used for the masala. Never tried masala with this combo. Bookmarked to try. Stunning pics too.

    Reg. my Goli Baje recipe, yes you may use ginger paste too. I used powder as I don't have paste or fresh ginger on hand. Or you can totally omit ginger and make these. It won't make any difference. Hope this clarifies your doubt?

  11. Looks delicious.I have all the ingredient on hand will try and let you knw.

  35. hi raks am a bjg fan of ur blog.. have tried many recipes. I tred this one today. but had a prob wit the raw onion smell. it never went off completely even after fryin for more than 20 min. let me know wat shud be done. tanq in advance

  36. Add more oil while frying. Or if u are skeptical use fried onion for grinding.

  37. tanq so much. maybe its because I used yellow onions and not red ? I'll try again with red onions sometime

  38. Tried yesterday, came out really good.

  39. It came out very well.. Simple yet beautiful recipe.. I cudnt post a query in ur pizza recipe., is there any way to make pizza without oven.. im yet to purchase one

  40. I have a doubt. Can v make this in a pressure cooker like u did ur potato kurma? Will it make the curry more mushy?
    Thanks in advance :)

    1. Chances are there to turn out mushy as cauliflower these days gets easily mashed up.

  41. Hi raks tried today it come out well my hubby liked very Much even I liked taste is gud
