Gobi Matar

It feels so good to be back to blogging... after this unusually long longgggg break. Blame it on my kid, a move, family visits, vacations & most of all the LAZY ME :)
I dont promise to update on a regular basis, but will try to make it atleast once a week.
Here is a really simple dish from a very old issue of femina magazine. I have made this many times & it has always tasted good. Hope u all like it too..

1 medium sized cauliflower, cut into small florets
1/2 cup of frozen or cooked green peas
2 tbsps butter
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 inch ginger, julienned
2 green chillies, finely chopped
salt, to taste
1/4 tsp garam masala powder
a few sprigs of fresh corainder leaves, finely chopped

Melt butter in a non-stick pan. Season with cumin seeds & ginger juliennes. Fry for a while till ginger turns crisp. Add green chillies, cauliflower & salt. Saute well. Cover & cook for 10 mins or till done. Add green peas & mix well. Sprinkle corainder leaves & garam masala powder. Mix well & turn off the flame.

Serve hot with rotis.
