Tava Gobi/ Cauliflower in Griddle

Tava Gobi is an instant dry sabji that goes well with soft parathas or curd rice. Its simple recipe makes it ideal for the bachelors. Only extra thing to do here is the cleaning part of the cauliflowers. As we all know that a cauliflower may turn a veggie into a non-veggie :) (considering the insects it may have :)). It becomes so imperative to wash it thoroughly with salt in warm water. But don't be discouraged with the effort, as the end product is absolutely worth it!

Note the Ingredients:

Cauliflower florets thoroughly washed,

2-3 Garlic cloves

2 Green chillies finely chopped

1/2 tsp Mustard and cumin seeds

1 tbsp Oil

1 tsp Garam masala powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric

Salt as per taste(apprx 1/2 tsp)

Fresh Corriander


Heat oil in a tava/griddle. Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds followed by pressed garlic cloves and Cauliflower florets. Saute on medium heat for about 5 min. Then add green chillies, salt, turmeric and garam masala powder. Cook uncovered for another 5 -10 min taking care that the florets dont stick to the tava. When done put off the heat.Garnish with fresh corriander/cilantro.

Serve the nice n crunchy tava gobi with chapati/paratha or curd rice.
