One such exotic dish is Cauliflower peas masala. This dish is a healthy yet tasty curry made from steamed cauliflower and peas. These two veggies are slow cooked in the creamy and aromatic tomato-onion sauce. The addition of garam masala infuses a mild spiciness to the dish perfectly. The final addition of fresh coriander leaves and dried fenugreek leaves adds a lovely flavor to the gravy. Finely chopped coriander leaves on top brings a beautiful contrast of colors in the dish making my plate tempting to spoon them quick. I serve this with pulka, chapati, roti and as a sandwich.
