Cauliflower Gravy

This gravy goes good with Naan, chapathi and even with dosa. I've added chillies as well red chilly powder. So, please adjust the quantity according to your taste.

11. Garam Masala - 1 tsp
12. turmeric powder - 1 tsp
13. Red Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
14. Milk - 4 tbs
15. Water - 5 cups or less (This measurement worked for me but one of our blogger friend said, it was bit watery. So, please add little water first and adjust accordingly to get gravy consistency)
16. Paneer - 1/4 Cup (grated)
17. Oil - 1 tbs
18. Salt - Needed qty
19. Coriander - 1/4 Cup (Finely chopped)
20. Lemon Juice - 1 tsp

3. Grind them to a fine paste.Keep aside.
4. Cook cauliflower with pinch of salt and keep aside.
5. In a pan, add oil. Then add garlic, ginger and cut chillies. Fry well till garlic changes to brown colour.
6. Add the ground mixer, tomato puree, water and salt. Allow it to boil well.
7. Now, add the cooked cauliflower, peas and paneer.
8. Close the pan with lid. Medium the flame.
9. Wait till the contents thicken.Add the lemon juice. Mix well.
10. Garnish with coriander.
11.Serve hot with Naan, Chapathi, etc..

Nithu, love the recipe and the click. The one thing I love is it doesn't use onions, not that I don't like it. But, it is just that I have gotten into habbit of using onion and garlic for much every curry I make. So, this will be a good way of getting out of that habbit. Thanks for sharing :)

Neetz said...

i will try this week and will let u know how it turned out :)

Neetz said...

i just made this recipe..actually on the process.. i have one clarification..you have said water-5 cups... i added 5 cups and the gravy is very loose in consistency. doi have to keep over flame for more time to get thicken gravy as the cauliflower is already cooked?

Neetz said...

just completed cooking..it didnt come out so nice as shown in ur pic :(..maybe next time i will try and see how it turns out :)
