How to clean cauliflower to make any gobi recipe:
1.Remove the leaves and cut off the stem at the bottom of the cauliflower with the help of a knife.
2.Firstly, separate big florets from the cauliflower.
3.Then remove any insects or mainly tiny worms that are hidden or crawling around those florets with a sharp object or knife.
4.If the florets are too large break them into small pieces.
5.Take a vessel, add water and boil it. Add salt if required.
6.Add the florets into the boiling water and blanch them for few seconds.
7.It makes the gobi white and removes the dirt, unwanted impurities and worms if there are any.
8.Drain the hot water and pour cold water on the gobi pieces and let the cold water drain completely.
9.Take the gobi pieces out on a towel to dry them or put the pieces in the sieve for a long time for the excess water to be drained out.
10.The cauliflower florets can now be used to make any gobhi sabji.
