This is adapted from Mallika badrinath's recipe. I have made few changes to it. Main change was to remove the ghee from the list of ingredients :) The original recipes also uses small onions (pearl onions) and i didn't have them and i used regular onions and it still tasted good. This is nice variation to the regular cauliflower curry that we make and i made it mainly to send something different for JFI Cauliflower. This is very spicy, so pls. adjust the pepper and redchillies according to your taste.
Cauliflower - 1 big
Onions - 1.5
Salt to taste.
To grind :
Pepper - 1/2 spoon
Red chillies - 3
Jeera/Cumin Seeds - 1 spoon
Onion - 1/2
Mustard seeds, urad daal, hing and curry leaves
Steam cut cauliflower in microwave for 5, 6 minutes.
In the meanwhile, cut 1/2 onion and saute in little oil along with pepper and red chillies.
Let it cool. Add 1 spoon cumin seeds to the onion, pepper and redchillies and grind them with little water. Do not fry the cumin seeds along with the above said ingredients. It will smell like medicine when you cook!
Heat little oil and pop mustard seeds. Add hing, curry leaves and urad daal and saute till the daal is golden brown. Add the remaining chopped onion and saute till they are translucent. Add the steamed cauliflower, ground paste and salt to taste and cook till the raw smell goes.
It is sort of a dry curry (not too dry), so it tastes better with Rice than with Rotis.
I am sending this to JFI Cauliflower hosted by Mythreyee. JFI was originally started by Indira (Mahanandi)
I am also sending this to Divya's Think Spice Think Pepper
