Cauliflower peas masala 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.

Curry with Cauliflower and Peas Recipe

 1 kg Cauliflower
 1 cup frozen peas (thawed)
 1 onion – finely chopped
 1 tomato – puree
 2 tsp chilli powder
 1 tsp turmeric powder
 4 tsp coriander powder
 2 tsp garam masala
 2 tsp dried fenugreek / kasoori methi
 ½ cup coriander leaves – chopped
 ½ tbsp ginger-garlic paste
 1 tbsp lemon juice

 Salt to taste

Wash and clean the cauliflower florets. Bring the water to a boil. Add little salt and throw in the cauliflowers and cook for 6-7 minutes. Once done, remove and let it cool.


Heat the oil in a cooking vessel. Once they get heated up, add the onions and little salt and cook till they brown lightly.


Add the ginger garlic paste and cook for further 2-3 minutes. Then add the turmeric powder, chilli powder and coriander powder and cook till the raw smell disappears.


Mix in the tomato puree and add little water, about 25ml and cook covered for 10 minutes.


Once the onions soften, mix in the cauliflower florets and peas. Sprinkle the garam masala on top and adjust salt to taste.


Pour the lemon juice and finally garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and hand-crushed dried fenugreek leaves (kasoori methi).
