While sourcing for an alternative cauliflower side dish, I came across this recipe. Now, I can't remember which site I got it from! I like this recipe as it doesn't involve tedious onion and tomato chopping. A very simple recipe and the aroma and taste of ginger are quite out of the world!
Ingredients ( For 4)
2 tbsps. canola oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds, pounded for extra flavor release
1 tbsp. ginger, pounded
1/2 green chilli, chopped ( more if you prefer spicier)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder ( more if you prefer spicier)
3/4 cup tomato sauce
Salt per preference
1 medium cauliflower cut into florets
1/2 cup green peas
2 sprigs coriander leaves, chopped and extra for garnishing
Heat a pot with the oil and fry the cumin seeds and then the pounded ginger.
Next, add in the green chilli and fry further.
After a few minutes, add in the spice powders, salt and then the tomato sauce.
Once all the spices has married well with the tomato sauce, add in the cauliflower florets, green peas and coriander leaves. Stir to combine.
Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle some water now and then to ensure vegetables don't stick to the bottom or get burnt!
Check for seasonings and serve warm with any curry and Basmati Peas Rice.
