There is something magical about cauliflower. It seems so common, but lends itself to a variety of preparations from everyday fare to exotic dishes.

Here, for example, it combines with peppy capsicum, everyday spices and spice powders to make a tongue-tickling Gobi Simla Mirch that you can serve with roti or enjoy just by itself!

You will surely enjoy the tang lent by tomatoes and the super aromatic touch of kasuri methi in this mouth-watering dish.

Besides subzi, cauliflower can be used to make Cauliflower Parathas , Cauliflower and Oats Tikki and Cauliflower and Broccoli Pie .

Extremely delicious! Parboiling the cauliflower with the turmeric gives it a beautiful color and flavor. I made sure to drain and pat the cauliflower dry so it could get ever so slightly crisp/browned when sautéed with the masala.

Gobi simla mirch.. Wow.. arich aroma of the kasuri methi.. with the spices perfectly coated to the veggies.. I loved this dry subzi.. as the veggies have been sauteed separately.. this gives a nice flavour to the subzi..
