Cauliflower Pepper Korma

Cauliflower Pepper Korma3

Chapathi or roti with healthy vegetable korma can be the best menu for dinner. I have been following this mantra for quite sometime now and I simply feel lite and good before I hit the bed. :)

Cauliflower and peas make a finger and nail combination. They go so well together and this combinational korma was finger licking too :)

Pepper adds the spicy oomph factor to the korma. :)

Cauliflower Pepper Korma2

Ingredients:

Cauliflower - 1
Green Peas - 1 cup
Tomato - 2
Onion - 1 (big)
Garlic - 5 pods
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Pepper - 1 tsp
Cumin - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - for taste
Corn flour - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt - for taste

Cauliflower Pepper Korma

Method:

Cook cauliflower and peas. Dice tomatoes into small cubes. Grind ginger, garlic and onion together. Powder the pepper and cumin seeds.

Once all the above is ready, take a pan and add two tsps of oil and fry the tomatoes till tender. Add the ginger, garlic and onion paste and fry for few minutes till the raw smell goes and your kitchen starts smelling heavenly.

Now add the cooked cauliflower, peas, pepper powder, cumin powder, Chilly powder, sugar and salt into the pan. Add adequate water to make gravy and allow it to boil for a while.

Mix in the corn flour with just a little water and add it to the gravy stirring it continuously. This gives the gravy a slightly thicker consistency and also the shine ;) I do this addition to most of my kormas to combine the vegetables well with the gravy.

Scrumptious Cauliflower Pepper korma is ready to serve. :)

Serve with chapathi, roti or any Indian bread of your choice :)

Cauliflower Peas Korma4

Note:

For additional taste, you can smear some salt and half cook the cauliflowers and deep fry them in oil before adding it to the gravy.

I love it that way, but dint make it due to weight consciousness ;)
