Original recipe from my veggie world – Anne and Kristen changed it up
Recipe type: Main Dish
  • 1 big onion ground to a fine paste
  • 1 big tomato pureed
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or minced fresh garlic, 1-2 cloves)
  • 1 teaspoon green chili paste
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green peas
  • 1 cup cleaned cauliflower florets
  • salt to taste (between 1 tsp and 1 TBSP)
  • pinch of turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon red chili powder
  • 3 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  1. In a large skillet, heat oil (mediumish heat). Add onion paste and fry till cooked or until raw smell disappears. Add ginger, garlic (if using fresh), green chili paste and saute for one minute. Add tomato puree and cook till paste is thick. Add powdered spices and salt. Stir then add vegetables. Cover and simmer over medium heat until cauliflower is tender. Add chopped fresh cilantro prior to serving.
  2. Serve with basmati rice, with fresh cilantro added to the rice just prior to serving.
Jane note: this dish would be good with more kick, as well – I liked it mild, but I want to experiment with making it spicier some time
