The traditional ghassi masala paste made of myriad spices, coconut, onions and tamarind is a perfect base to cook vegetables like cauliflower and potato, because it has a multi-faceted flavour that overpowers the subtlety of the veggies making the final dish rather exciting.

Coconut milk is a must as it balances the spices in the paste, ensuring that the Cauliflower and Potato Ghassi is exciting but also pleasing to the palate.
