Easy Breezy Cauliflower

I never really liked cauliflower, it's just a vegetable I eat if there is nothing else, but mom makes this a lot and I love it this way because you don't really taste the cauliflower too much.


INGREDIENTS

1 whole Cauliflower -- seperated into bite size florets
4 tbsp Besan
1 tsp Jeera
Turmeric
Salt
Red Chilli Powder
Oil

PROCEDURE

Add the florets and enough water to soak them, in a microwave safe bowl. Heat until the cauliflower florets are just a little soft. Took about 4 minutes for me.
In a pan heat about 3 to 4 tbsp of oil (the cauliflower and besan will soak up the oil, so you need a little extra than you would put in a regular curry) and add jeera. Once the jeera browns add in the cauliflower pieces. I like my curries a little crispy, so I let them brown for a little while.
Once the pieces are cooked throughly, add in the besan, turmeric, salt and red chilli powder to taste, mix everything well and cook until the raw smell from the besan disappears. Should take about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve with rice or roti.

hey interesting way to cook gobhi... a suggesting try mixing the seasoning along with the besan and a tsp of oil apply it on your gobhi and m/w plate spread the whole thing out and keep microwaving for 1 min keep checking on it - you'll get crspy gobhis with less oil. I tried something similar when I was home (mum's place) and it turned out pretty crispy. (i dont own a m/w at my place here)
