Gobi masala restaurant style recipe

     I usually make cauliflower curry for Aj who loves cauliflower a lot, that he would even eat it every day as accompaniment for his lunch. He is that much crazy about cauliflower. Even I like cauliflower, there is a fair reason behind it. My mom never buys cauliflower or cooks cauliflower at home. That’s coz, they hate the small worms inside the cauliflower,which is used to be a common thing those days. So she treats that veggie as ‘Non-veg’. So only very few times I had tasted cauliflower in restaurants, when I am with my friends.
      Then after marriage, things changed, thankfully they do buy and cook cauliflower. And when I started cooking, I enjoyed cooking cauliflower in different forms : gobi paratha, aloo gobi, cauliflower kurma, curry, fries, gobi 65 or add it in briyani or kurma. Hope this is enough to proveSmug. But the only thing what I don’t like is the cauliflower we get here is so very different from the ones we get in India. Here it gets cooked so quick and becomes very soft and turns mushy easily. I like it more on firm and crunchy side. Still nothing stops. This gobi masala recipe is one of Aj’s recent favourite cauliflower recipe. Once when we ordered lunch, this one came as an accompaniment and I was wondering, why I have not tried this way so far. And very soon I tried and it came out even better than what we tasted. My kid just loved it and I too loved it. It goes very well with roti or naan, even kara kuzhambu too or mild pulaos too. With all these masalas, it tastes awesome..!won’t it?

Notes

  • Clean cauliflower properly before cooking it by immersing it in hot water with salt for 10 minutes.

  3. That definitely looks great! I like that you have used biryani masala here, I also try to use different masalas for the same curries I make, sometimes just to get a different taste. It works sometimes, and sometimes it does not work too.

  50. Cauliflower florets, when immersed in hot water kills the tiny worms which tend to stick to the florets. Pl immerse them in luke warm water with salt,which will make the worms if any afloat.
    Nowadays, ( since i ve seen a CF field in warangal dist AP) pesticides are used liberally to ward off pests
    I immerse CF and all other vegetables in water and mix a little soapberry extract( boondikottai). Sb removes 75% of pesticides when the veggies a re soaked in for half an hour max.
    Thanks for going thro my message and i really love they way u make a variety dishes easier for lots of begginers and people like me too

    it looks so colorful...but is it imp to soak cauliflower in warm tumeric water.....

    ReplyDelete
  58. Soap berry or boondhi kottai, is my cleaning elixir. I use kriya detergent made from organic soapberry. Everyday isoak some crushed SB ina cup of water and use the liquid as a multipurpose cleanser
    Gas stove tops and the granite slbs, glass and bone china
    , vegetables, all glass slabs and shelfs, every where. It is eco friendly and gives more lustre and shine to the object
    water bottles ofcourse. Pl check http://krya.in/index.php/ for further knowledge about soap berries

    1. Keeping immersed in hot water with salt will not infuse salt inside the gobi. May be you used very less cauliflower.
