Gobi Masala / Cauliflower Curry!!!!

Hi guys!!!

Aloo Gobi Masala is a curry that I frequently prepare. But I do opt to exclude the aloo from the curry at times and land at this amazing gobi masala. This is a great accompaniment for rotis and is a very fulfilling dish too. Both me and my husband love this curry.  Cauliflower is the second most often used vegetable in my kitchen. Aloo is the winner by the way :-)

This is just like any other north indian curry I prepare. Just the right proportion of the masala powders is what matters. You can either pre-cook the cauliflower to shorten the process or just cook it when preparing the curry. I prefer the second option.

Now lets see the recipe.


Cauliflower - 1 small
Onion - 1 big
Tomato - 1 big
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Kasoori methi - 1 tsp (optional)
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp


1. Heat the oil and add the cumin seeds. When they start to sizzle add the chopped onions, followed by ginger garlic paste and tomato.
2. Cook this for a couple of minutes till all the ingredients combine to form a paste. Now add all the masala powders, salt, kasoori methi if using and mix well.
3. Now add the cauliflower chunks and 1/2 cup of water and close and cook for about 15 minutes.
4. Keep stirring in between to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan. When the gobi is all cooked and the masala is well blended, switch off heat.

Serve hot with rotis or pulao.
