Kobi Santula

Cooking time required: 25 mins
Cost of preparation: 30-35 rupees

Ingredients: cauliflower ( 1 no, medium ), tomato ( 1 large ), onion ( 2 nos, medium ), green chilli ( 1 no ), red chilli powder ( 1 tsp ), ginger garlic paste ( 1 tsp ), turmeric (1/4 tsp), salt, oil ( 4-5 tsp ), pancha phutana ( 1/2 tsp), garam masala ( 1/3 tsp , optional ).

Preparation: Dice the cauliflower into large sized florets . Cut the onion into thin long slices. Cut the tomato into long slices along its length and remove the seeds.

Cooking: Heat a pan . Add 3 tsp oil. Add the cauliflower florets along with salt and turmeric. Stir fry for 10 mins on medium to high flame or till the florets are almost cooked. Remove from pan and keep aside.

Heat a wok. Pour the remaining oil into it. Add the pancha phutana and green chilli followed by the onions. Stir fry till the onions turn golden. Add the ginger garlic paste and cook for 3-4 mins till the raw smell goes off. Add the fried cauliflower florets and the tomato slices. Sprinkle red chilli powder and a little salt. Cover with a lid and cook till the tomatoes soften and mix with the rest of the ingredients.Take care that the cauliflower is not overcooked.

Add the garam masala and mix well. Remove from the stove. Serve with rice, rotis or parathas.

Note: One may puree the tomato instead of adding the slices. This also helps reduce the cooking time.
