Black & white Wednesday with Cauliflower in Tomato Gravy

Cauliflower one veggie we make often!  The versatility of the veggie is such that it can   be made into a quick stir fry for chapatti& rice, or fried for a snack or make into a pickle with a slight shift in ingredients. Each has its own charm, Own following!!

So when Priyaof Mharo Rajasthan's Recipes, announced the veggie of the month as cauliflower to be hosted by I knew I would be sending my entry here.

I would like to send this entry that my SIL &  I had long long ago copied from somewhere.

Oil for frying

2 big or 3 medium sized onions
3-4 tomatoes

½ tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
½ tsp garam masala
½ tsp pav bhaji masala

 A few springs of coriander


1.    Soak the cauliflower in water and salt for about 10 minutes.
2.   Drain it and with a little water and salt cover with a lid and par boil the cauliflower. Say about 5 minutes or till you get the aroma of boiled cauliflower. (2 minutes in the microwave).
