Cauliflower curry - a 2 minute curry

We dont eat cauliflower in my mom's place. After i got married, i started using cauliflower in little amounts, mostly in Veg pulav or kurma. I always feel there should be a very simple recipe with this vegetable and i thought of preparing curry for my kids one day for dinner.

Thank GOD, it was accepted by my kids very well and after finishing, i got a question,'amma what veg is that, its yummy'....yeeeeaaaahhhhh.....what can be more happier than this for a mother....

Here goes the recipe,


Cauliflower florets - have small florets cleaned and boiled.
Onion - as needed.
Tomato - as needed
Salt, chilly powder - little
Garam masala/Ginger-garlic paste - as per one's wish, if the curry needs to be spicy


Make small florets and with a pinch of turmeric, boil it for sometime or keep in cooker for 4 whistles. Strain the water and make sure no worms are present.

Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds. Once the seeds start to splutter, add the onion and fry till it becomes golden brown.

Now add the tomatoes and the boiled cauliflower to the kadai and mix them well in medium flame. Sprinkle little salt and chilly powder. Add half a teaspoon of oil and keep in low flame.

Once the raw smell of the chilly powder is gone, switch off the gas and transfer to another container for serving.

Variation: For those who like the flavor of ginger/garlic/garam masala, can add them to this recipe for a different taste. When frying onion, add the ginger-garlic paste also to it and fry it in the oil till it mixes with the onion nicely. Finally along with chilly powder little bit of garam masala can be added.

This recipe hardly took me 2 mins to finish leaving the boiling time of cauliflower.I boiled the cauliflower florets when i cooked rice in the cooker.
