Butter, 2 chunks

Cumin seeds (Zeera), 2 tsp

Ginger paste, 2 tsp

Green chili, 1 chopped


Peas, as much as you like

Coriander leaves, chopped for garnish

Garam masala, 1 tsp

Salt, to taste


  • Melt butter in a kadhai.
  • Add cumin seeds and let them sputter. Now add ginger paste and fry till you smell the wonderful aroma of ginger.
  • Now add the chopped green chili, the cauliflower florets, peas and salt. Sauté well.
  • Pour in just enough water so that cauliflower cooks well in the steam. This is like a quarter cup of water.
  • Cover it and let it cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, or till done. You can check the softness of cauliflower it should not be hard from inside (use a fork to check) and it should not be mushy either.
  • Gently mix them all to insure everything is cooked.
  • You can now garnish with the chopped coriander leaves and garam masala. I generally toss and mix the coriander and garam masala in with the veggies at this stage and it looks super.
  • Smells super too! Best served with hot buttery chapattis.
