Kadai Gobi

Anything made in a kadai is a big hit at home. This preparation is almost similar to Kadai paneer and this goes well with chapatis.

Cauliflower: 2 cups (cut into florets)
Capsicum: 1 large cubed (I used yellow bell pepper)
Cumin: 1 tsp
Onion: 2 medium cubed
Green chilly: 3 slit
Ginger garlic paste: 1 heaped tsp
Chilly Powder: 1 tsp
Coriander powder: 1.5 tsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Tomato Paste: 1 tbsp
Tomato Sauce: 1/2 tbsp
Tomato: 1 medium quartered
Yoghurt: 1 tbsp
Salt and oil: as required
Wash the cauliflower, pour 4 cups of very hot water and a tbsp of salt onto it and keep it covered for 15 minutes
In a Kadai, heat oil and saute the drained cauliflower for 3 minutes.
Now add the cubed capsicum to the half cooked cauliflower and let it get cooked (don't overdo it..)
Keep this aside.
In the same Kadai, heat oil and add the cumin, onions, ginger garlic paste and green chilly.
Saute till wilted and add the turmeric powder, coriander powder and chilly powder.
Saute for a minute and then add the yoghurt.
Mix everything properly and add the tomato paste and tomato sauce and saute again for half a minute.
Now add the quartered tomatoes and required salt and let the tomatoes cook a lil bit (not too much, coz we need the tomato to remain in quarters and not mashed up)
Add the cauliflower and capsicum and mix everything properly.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Rotis.


  1. looks mouth-watering and this is an interesting recipe! We only make gobi manchurian (too oily) or cauliflower mezhukupuratty (again too oily and not interesting). This will be a refreshing change to our boring methods of preparing cauliflower. Will try it out soon :)
