Since moving to Australia,I am frustrated with the choice of vegetables available…Every week I go to the vegetable market and come back with the same stuff- cabbage,cauliflower,Eggplant,Beans..sometimes spinach.
I am forever looking for new recipes to make these seem monotonous.
So,when I saw Monika’s recipe for Kheema Gobhi,I had to try it..And we loved it.
Inspired by Mon’s recipe..this is what I came up with-
2 medium onion,fine chopped
1 small tomato,chopped
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 cup peas
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp dhania-jeera powder
1 tsp-Kitchen King Masala(optional)
Khada masala-(1 inch piece of cinammon,2-3 peppercorns,2-3 cloves,2 cardamom pods)
salt to taste
2 tsp oil for cooking.
Heat oil in a pan.Add the Khada Masala,when it starts to brown,add onions and fry till golden brown.
Add garlic and stir for a 20-30 secs.
Add tomatoes and let it cook for 3-4 minutes and then add peas.fry for 2-3 minutes,before adding the grated cauliflower.
Add Cauliflower,and add the spices.Mix well.
Add about 1.5 cups ofwater.Add salt.Bring it to a boil.Then lower the flame,cover and let it simmer,till desired consistency is achieved.
Garnish with corriander leaves and onion rings.Serve hot with roti or rice,or even plain toasted bread with some shaved cheese!Dig in!
