Spiced Punjabi Gobi/ Cauliflower Masala …


This cauliflower/ Gobi masala recipe is Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free …
The best part is that Gobi has an ability to absorb flavors and spices

It is very important to pay attention while cooking so that
Cauliflower does not break down into a mush….

Every cook in India has their own version of Gobi Masala and here is my take on this classic recipe .
Lets start cooking this simply irresistible and easy to make Indian Gobi Masala …..

Makes: 3-4 servings as a side dish
Total Time: 30 Minutes


1 cauliflower head, cut into florets 500 grams
1 inch ginger finely chopped
1teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tsp red chili powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder optional
1teaspoon garam masala powder
salt to taste
1 TBS cooking oil
Coriander / cilantro for garnishing

Method :

Heat a TBS of oil in a pan .

Once the oil is hot ,Add the ginger and cumin seeds and saute them for a few seconds.
Add in the cauliflower, chili powder ,garam masala powder, salt and stir until well combined for about a minute

Add about 2 tablespoons of water, cover the pan, turn the heat to low and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes stirring occasionally, until cooked.

The cauliflower will be soft, yet firm and delicious to taste. Finally stir in the coriander leaves and turn off heat. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust as per taste ..
Best served with parathas & chapatis…


1. You can also add potatoes, peas , tomatoes to this recipe, but I prefer making it with cauliflower alone.
2. I love to make a wrap out of leftover Gobi along with some salad greens and greek yogurt ..
