Cauliflower Curry / Gobi Masala

Today's recipe is very simple yet delicious Gobi Masala curry which goes well with roti, naan, flavored pulao or plain pulao. Adding cashew paste gives a very nice creamy texture and taste to the dish. Cahsews can be replaced with almonds too. When ever I cook cauliflower dishes I make sure to boil them in hot water for 4-5 minutes. This process is must because  it avoids florets becoming  mushy when added to gravy. 

This recipe goes to week 4, day 2 of Blogging Marathon 111.


Gobi / Cauliflower florets 2 cups
Onion chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato chopped 1 cup
Chopped garlic 1 tsp
Cashew nuts 10

Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Chili powder 1 tbsp
Coriander powder  1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Chopped cilantro 1/4 cup
Oil 2 tbsp


Soak cashew nuts in water for 10 minutes and make it to smooth paste.
Boil 3-4 cups water, add cauliflower florets and cook for 5 minutes.
Drain water and set aside.
In a deep pan heat oil, add mustard and cumin seeds.
