Masala Gobhi(cauliflower cooked in spicy curry)

Gobhi (cauliflower) is in abundance in the market at this time. Gobhi aloo, Gobhi Manchurian, Gobhi ke parathae (cauliflower stuffed Indian bread) are made on a regular basis in winters. Let’s make a delicious Gobhi dish in thick curry. To make this dish healthy, I have cut the amount of oil but you can always make changes (such as deep frying Gobhi before adding it to curry). Masala Gobhi goes very well with lachcha paratha, and plain paratha. Try out this dish and please do share your comments.
