Green Vs White

This season of spring has really inspired me to prepare this recipe with fresh broccoli and cauliflower.Simple yet a healthy recipe with the richness of tomato base which has added to the unique flavour.This curry can be eaten as it is or with simple rice or roti/pita breads as sides.

Cauliflower - 1 cup
Broccoli - 1 cup
Onions - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Garlic - 2-3 cloves
salt -1.5 tsp
pepper -1 tsp
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
wheat flour -3 tsp
tomato paste - 3 tsp
tomato diced - 3 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
paprika powder - 1 tsp

1.Take a pan add oil and then add cumin when it splutters add onions and garlic , saute them till it turns transparent.
2.Now add tomato ,continue to stir it.When the tomatoes turn soft add tomato paste and mix properly.
3.Now add wheat flour mixed in cold water to the tomato mixture and keep mixing properly .Season with salt and paprika powder, bring to a boil and simmer and cook for 5 mins adding enough water to make a gravy thick as you like.
4.Now cook the cauliflower and broccoli florets in microwave for 7 mins season with salt and pepper.
5.Now assemble the cauliflower and broccoli florets in a dish and pour the gravy over it and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.You can also bake this for an additional flavour for 10 more mins.I have not baked it.Enjoy....

great idea to mix cauliflower and broccoli. I have always thought to do that but somehow didn't do it cos I was not sure abt the end result as I do not like broccoli that much. urs sounds good. thanks for sharing.

Hi Soumya, how yummy! I usually prepare broccoli and cauliflower in creamy cheesy (therefore greasy) sauces, so this one is a delightful change! Thanks for leaving me a note on my blog! :)
