Cauliflower with pea and potatoes in a brown gravy
I labored over this dish a bit but the results were worth it. There are some dishes worth laboring over and a good gravy for a vegetable dish is worth it. Brown gravies work very well with sturdy vegetables like cauliflower. Labour a bit over the browning of the onions which can take you as long as fifteen minutes but I can assure you this is a dish worth putting on any table.
The dish needs be a deep brown colour. Make sure you brown the onions in a tea spoon of oil stirring it constantly on high flame.
Here is a way to cheat with creating a deep brown colour. Take a tea bag and boil it in a cup of water. Add this to the dish after the masala goes into the pot. Don’t worry your dish wont taste like tea. This is a great hack
I used chole masala which I had bought before the lock down. It’s a good one from a company called Table Spoon ™ – Delhi Chole Masala. I found this a bit pricy at Rs 79 for 100 grams but very good in quality. Alternatively use any Chole masala you have.
Break the cauliflower into bite sized florets and let it soak for ten minutes in salted water. This takes care of any creepy crawlies that are hidden in the cauliflower
