Cauliflower Bhaji (gobi bhaji)

You probably guessed it by now, I love cauliflower.  Not only does it have an excellent taste, it is also excellent for your health and can be cooked in so many different ways.  This cauliflower bhaji is a perfect accompaniment to the chicken tikka skewers.

- 1 medium cauliflower, cut into florets
- 2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- ½ tsp black mustard seeds
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- ½ tsp ground turmeric
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2 green chilies, finely chopped
- A dozen curry leaves

In a large pan (one that has a lid), heat the oil and add cumin and mustard seeds.  

When the seeds start popping, add the remaining spices, the garlic, the chilies and the curry leaves. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Add the cauliflower and stir until well mixed with the spices.

Add about a ¼ cup (60ml) water, bring to a simmer, cover and cook until cauliflower is al dente (i.e. not completely cooked through), stirring every now and then.

Remove cover, raise the heat to high and stir-fry until there is no more water and the cauliflower is slightly browned.
