  • 2 Potato - medium, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups Cauliflower - florets (about half of a medium cauliflower)
  • 1 Onion - medium, chopped
  • 1 Tomato - medium, chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger+garlic paste
  • 1 tsp Red Chili flakes - (adjust as per taste)
  • 1 tsp methi Kasoori - , crushed
  • 3 tbsp Cilantro - , finely chopped

For the Spice Mix:

  • 1 tsp Garam Masala - (homemade or store bought)

  • to taste Rock Salt (or regular salt)
  • 2 tbsp Besan Chickpea flour /
  • ½ tsp pomegranate seeds Anardana pd/ Ground dried
  • 1 tsp Coriander Ground
  • ½ tsp cumin Ground

For Tempering:

  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 2 cloves Garlic - , finely minced


  • Par boil potato and cauliflower until fork tender. I microwave them separately to expedite the process. Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium flame, add 1tbsp oil and saute potato and cauliflower separately until lightly golden, about 8~10 minutes. Alternately you can deep fry uncooked veggies until golden. Remove onto a paper towel lined plate.
  • Heat 2tbsp oil, add onions, ginger+garlic paste and cook for 4~5 minutes or until the onion turns lightly browned around the edges.
  • Add tomato and cook till mushy. Next add the fried potato and cauliflower, mix well and cook for 2~3 minutes.
  • In the meantime, combine the spices for the spice mix in a small bowl. Stir well and add this to the veggie mixture, cover and cook on low flame for all the flavors to mingle, about 6~8 minutes.
  • Next add crushed red pepper flakes, kasoori methi and chopped cilantro. Cook covered for another 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the curry to the serving bowl.
  • For the Tempering: Heat 2tsp oil in a small pan, add the cumin seeds and garlic. Once the seeds start to splutter and garlic is golden, pour the tempering over the curry. Serve with roti or rice.
