Cauliflower Curry

This is a very simple dry curry/poriyal prepared with cauliflower. It goes well with both rice and all Indian breads. My family loves this curry very much. I have added ginger as it aids in digestion and also because my family loves it. Those who do not like the taste of ginger can omit that. Today we will learn how to make gobi/cauliflower sabji following this easy recipe.

  47. Thanks for your easy but scrumptious recipes. One questio, what's the purpose behind soaking florets in warm turmeric added water? Is this an important step. I learnt it for the first time

    1. Soaking cauliflower in hot water with a little salt and turmeric powder gets rid of small worms, if any present in the cauliflower.
