Cauliflower curry posted here is along with a video procedure which is a vegetable curry using gobi florets in onion tomato gravy.
The cauliflower curry is in the form of a curry and goes well along with roti, rice and parathas.
The gobi curry tastes perfect in the form of a curry and gobi can be tried in various ways.
I would like to update many various gobi recipes as I keep posting and gobi can be made in the form of a fry or paratha, curry or pickle etc…
This is a vegetable with which we can try any form of recipe and yet it tastes amazing.
I usually make gobi in various ways like gobi 65, gobi fry, gobi curry, gobi sabzi etc… which are interesting combinations with roti and rice…gobi 65 can be eaten just as a starter or as a snack and tastes really yum.
Phool gobi or cauliflower curry here is made using chopped onions and chopped tomatoes which gives a good gravy to the curry and hence it goes good with roti and rice.
This gobi masala is commonly made in north india and south india and with some slight variations. In south india usually curry leaves are added into the curry recipes but its totally optional to add curry leaves into the curries.
We can add some variations in making the curry and here I have shared the common version of making the cauliflower curry along with the video procedure.
How to wash gobi florets to make gobi curry:
Cut the florets into medium sizes.
Boil water and add the florets into the water, blanch them for 2-3 minutes.
Strain the florets and rest it until there is no water content left on the florets.
Once the florets are cleaned well, they are ready to be used for any dish.
Doing this cleaning process helps in getting rid of minute worms or tiny particles out of the gobi florets.
