What’s on your meal- plan tonight, for me its a simple and tasty achari gobhi recipe. Among all the veggies, cauliflower/gobhi is one vegetable I like to experiment with. Besides from being healthy and nutritious, I think it’s a versatile recipe that can be adapted into any flavor whether be a manchurian or a simple gobhi recipe. My little one loves gobhi to the core and he can have the whole kadai to himself and when it comes to gobi sauteed in pickled spices…yum – it’s his favorite meal. 😉 A dry vegetarian side dish that tastes great when paired with dal and steamed rice – a perfect way to perk up a simple meal.
As said earlier, its a straightforward and easy recipe. Gobhi florets are cut into big chunks, pan toasted, sauteed in onion-tomato and flavored with pickled spices. Before we begin with the recipe, whole spices needs to be dry toasted in order to unlock their hidden flavors. I have added red chili flakes along with rest of the spices and toasted that too. But please do not toast the red chili flakes as it can irritate your throat and eyes. Once spices are dry toasted and cooled, coarsely pound them. Below mentioned ingredients will yield – 2 tablespoon masala.
Very forgiving recipe, adjust spices and gravies as per one’s taste. Like your vegetable to be more saucy and juicy, add extra tomato puree to the recipe. Likewise if you like your veggie to be spicy and hot, then add some more of achari masala.
