GOBI AND CHICK PEA GRAVY

My hubby asked(insists) me to make cauliflower Kurma instead of Gobi manzurian which is the default dish when I have a first look into the Gobi without getting second doubt.. I already have prepared Gobi Kurma and looking for panchangam (good time)? !.. to post it. Ha! Ha! Ha! This time I made this in different way, it came out very well and tasty too. Wonder thing is I got orange color and imdtly I have a thought of sending this to FIC Orange. He! He! he!

INGREDIENTS

Gobi florets 1 cup
Cooked chick peas (optional)
Potato 1
Carrot 2
Tomato 2
Onion 1
Green chilli 3
Cumin ½ tsp
Any seeds ½ tsp
Cinnamon 1 inch
Cloves 2
Grated coconut 3 tsp
Turmeric a pinch
Salt to taste
Garam masala 1 tsp
Chilli powder ½ tsp

METHOD

Cut the carrots and potato in desired shape. Soak the cauliflower florets in warm water for 10 mts.
Grind green chilies, cloves, cinnamon, coconut, any seeds, onion and tomatoes in to a thick paste.
In a pan pour some oil pop up jeera and add the veggies. Sauté and cook well for 10 mts until it done and soft. Mean while add salt and turmeric.
Now add the ground masala paste, cooked chick peas, chilli powder, Garam masala powder and combine well till the oil leaves and aroma spreads.
It u get too dry of this u can add some water to make a thick gravy.
Garnish with cilantro.

Goes well with chappaties/puries/parathas.
