Gobi Kheema – Minced Cauliflower

This dish is a great example of a simple yet delicious cauliflower based- preparation. I never knew cauliflower could taste this good till I ate it this dish around 11 years ago. It is made with cauliflower that is cut finely cut almost to resemble kheema which is a mince. This dish is made every weekend for lunch at my place to go along with hubby’s favorite tangy yellow dal (lentil) and rice.  Honestly, I can eat this just plain, bowlfuls of it to be honest. I hope you enjoy it!

  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 2 tomatoes chopped fine
  • 2- 3 green chillies chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1//4 teaspoon turmeric

Throw in the cauliflower and fry for 5 minutes. Then add the tomatoes, cilantro , garam masala, turmeric,coriander powder, salt and mix well.

Cover with a lid and keep on medium flame for 25 minutes till the cauliflower is cooked. Serve hot with lentil and rice. Enjoy!
