Cauliflower is blooming nowadays and i can find it more frequently here @ hydi... Eversince the price went reasonably low, my father-in-law makes a point of buying more gobi ... and yes, my refrigerator is flooded with cauliflowersss :) :) Thinking to make more gobi dishes... this post is a dry side-dish of cauliflower with peppercorns and other dry spices, thus making an excellant combo with paruppu saadham, keerai saadham, sambhar etc. Go ahead and try ... its so simple....
Ingredients requiredTo temper
- 4 tsp oil
- 1 tsp rai/mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp broken urad dal
- 1 tsp chana dal
- 8-10 whole dry red chillies
- 10-12 curry leaves
- 1/2 tsp hing/perungayam
- 2-3 tsp of finely chopped onions
- 2 tsp coarsely crushed peppercorns
- 1 cup cauliflower florets
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a kadaai, heat oil and add ingredients for temper one by one
Now, throw in cauliflower florets and cover the kadaai.
Sprinkle water now and then and cover cooked till cauliflower is done. Sprinkle salt. If wanted add pepper powder (if u need more other than tempering, which completely suits ur taste buds) and serve hot with rice and dal.
