Gobi Tamatar/Cauliflower with Tomatoes

Serves 4

Cauliflower florets – 15 (broken in medium sizes)

Tomato - 1 medium
Sliced Onion – 1 cup

Finely Chopped Garlic – 2 Tbsp (optional)

Chopped Green chili – 1 Tbsp

Garam masala powder– 1Tbsp

Coriander Powder – 1 ½ Tbsp

Turmeric powder - ½ tsp

Chili Powder – 1tsp (to taste/optional)

Salt – as per taste

Note – Instead of cutting the cauliflower try to break it’s florets in equal sizes. It gives the dish good looks and some how a better taste (May be its sounding a bit crazy ;))

In a pan take oil. Once hot add Onions. Cook til translucent say around 2-3min. Now add the finely chopped garlic, green chili and cook till onions become golden brown. Now add cauliflower florets. Mix it well, add turmeric, cover it and cook on low till it becomes a bit soft but at the same time crunchy (to see whether its done or not, take a small floret in a plate and try to break it. It should break but with a little pressure not easily.Another tip is the florets become bit translucent in color) . Now add salt and all other spices. Mix it well, cover it and cook for 30 sec. Now add chopped Tomatoes and coriander, cover itand cook for another 2-3min till tomatoes become bit soggy and cauliflower gets cooked. Now sprinkle ¼ tsp of garam masala (optional) in that and allow it to set for 2-3min before serving and tada…its ready!!!!!! Eat it with rotis or rice.
