Yes,........another one of my quick cooking dishes. Actually, I have a lot of them, coz I go to office, & that means I dont have time to spend on lavish dishes, & because of this I was always looking for excuses not to cook, & we used to dine out almost daily. So my MIL (for the love of her dear son) taught me innumerable quick cooking dishes. Now that I know them, I really cant get out of cooking for him.........kya karoon.....majboor hoon.

Jokes apart, I love cooking & have learnt a lot of N. Indian dishes from my MIL, & I find them easier than the S. Indian dishes which call for a lot of coconut.

Ing -
1 big cauliflower
a handful of peas
a bunch of finely chopped corriander leaves
1 big onion - finely chopped
1 tsp - jeera
a big pinch of hing
salt to taste
1/2 inch pc of ginger grated
red chilli / green chilli (whatever you prefer)
1 tsp - garam masala powder
1/2 tsp - amchur

Method -
Wash the cauliflower thoroughly & grate it.
In a kadai, add some oil & when it is hot add the jeera
When the jeera sputters, add the ginger & the hing. When it fries a bit add the onions
Just about when the onions get pink add the grated cauliflower & the peas
Cover & let them cook.
This will take about 5 minutes.
Open the lid, add the haldi, garam masala, chillies & amchur
Cook for another 2 /3 minutes, till a little oil starts showing on the sides.
Garnish with corriander leaves & serve with chappati or stuff into toasts.
