This spicy cauliflower dish is one of India's favorite. Ginger, garlic along w/fenugreek give it a flavor that you can only find in home-cooked meals.
Cauliflower is definitely one of my favorite vegetable as well as my dogs's. And this recipe is simply too flavorful.
Here are the reasons why this recipe should become a-regular in your home:-
1. Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable - thus a natural cancer fighter
2. Cauliflower and onions are both sulfur rich vegetables.
3. Spices like turmeric and cayenne in this recipe are both cancer-fighting as well as blood cleansing.
4. We are using organic Himalayan sea salt - rich in micro nutrients and zillion times better than white bleached salt.
5. Again, we are going to stick to steel pans from now on - no more non-stick!
6. Cooked in organic unrefined coconut oil - yummy and healthy!
7. Top with dried fenugreek - an anti-inflammatory, digestive and excellent for hair.
8. Again, a one-pot meal for your ease.
Now, let's start.
1. 1 Organic cauliflower
2. 1 small packed peas - or as much as you like per taste.
3. 1 organic yellow onion
4. 2-3 organic carrots
5. Ginger-garlic chopped/paste
Spices and oil -
1. Organic unrefined coconut oil
2. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
3. 1 teaspoon turmeric
4. 1 teaspoon each of coriander powder, cayenne, cumin powder and garam masala. If you don't like spicy - add less first of each like 1/2 teaspoon.
Mix with -
1. Dried fenugreek - this one I put about 1 1/2 teaspoon but you can try with less first, mix and taste.
Simple steps -
1. Put oil in pan and add onions and THEN cumin seeds. Saute on medium to low heat till slightly brown and soft.
2. Add carrots and cauliflower florets.
3. Add spices (#3 and #4) and saute for 7-8 mins. At this stage, add 1/3 cup water and mix.
4. Cover for 3-4 mins on low heat.
5. Mix all and check with knife if cauliflower is soft and cooked. If done, close the stove.
6. Now add peas and dried fenugreek. Mix again and cover.
Eat with rice, tortilla or gluten-free naan. Enjoy!
This served approx. 4 gluten-free tortilla wraps. And of coarse, it depends from person to person. If you want more in each wrap, then the serving will be less.
To increase the quantity (like when cooking for guests) - simply add more cauliflower or other veggies/onions or both.
Composting - Also, as always, keep composting - that is your organic free fertilizer - so all your vegetable/onion ends - yup, put it in a bin outside or just throw under the soil! Plants/Earth will thank you plus let's all stop using plastic for such ridiculous reasons. Compost! Compost! Compost! from now on.
