How to make it
- Parboil or microwave-cook cauliflower florets until almost done and set aside
- Heat oil and ghee/butter in a pan/wok.
- Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cloves, cardamom and cinammon and fry till the seeds splutter
- Add in the ground paste and tomato puree and fry in medium flame until oil separates out (a nice aroma should waft up by this time)
- Add parboiled florets, peas, salt and just enough water to bring to a thick gravy consistency, lower flame and cook with covered lid until the vegetables are done.
- Add 1/2 tsp sugar and ketchup and mix well
- Take off flame and mix in chopped coriander saving a little to garnish.
- Best serve with naan/chapatti/basmati rice and raita as a main dish (especially for a vegetarian meal) or as a side with a meat dish if you like.

This is lovely! I added it to the 'Undercover Veggies' group - cauli is one of the few veg my husband will eat, and even then only when it is covered in melted cheese - I'll try this one!sitbynellie in Glasgow loved it
