Cauliflower-potato-peas in yogurt sauce

Cauliflower is an awesome vegetable, which is low in fat and calories, high in fiber, folacin, potassium, water and vitamin C, have a very high nutritional density. Cauliflower is available year-round. Cauliflower is most commonly eaten cooked, but it may also be eaten raw or pickled. Cauliflower is so delicious and can be eaten in so many fun, simple and easy ways! I often use cauliflower in soups, curries, manchuria and also make parathas. Yogurt adds a nice finish to this dish. I wanted to create a simple and easy dish to fix quick meals, and this was the end product!!


1 small cauliflower ( florets, wash and clean)
2-3 medium potatoes(peel and cubed)
1/4th cup peas
1 small onion( chopped)
1 medium tomato ( chopped)
2 green chilles finely chopped ( optional)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander powder
red chilli powder (as desired)
1/4th tsp turmeric
1/3 cup beaten yogurt
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1 tbsp coriander leaves to garnish


Heat oil in a deep skillet on medium heat, add cumin seeds and allow them to splutter, add onions , green chillies ( if using) and turmeric and saute till onions turn translucent, add tomatoes and cook for 3-4 mins. To this add potatoes, peas and cook for 8-10 mins on low heat covered or cook till potatoes are 3/4th done, keep stirring in the middle, sprinkle some water if needed. Add coriander powder, chilli powder and cook for 2 mins. Add cauliflower florets and cook for 10-12 mins on medium-low flame covered. Once the cauliflower are done, turn off the heat and mix the yogurt. Garnish with corainder leaves and serve with rice or rotis.

Notes and Tips

Add yogurt once you turn off the heat, otherwise it will curdle. You can also add little cream along with yogurt. If you add cauliflower too early it will over cook and florets will fall a part and make the mushy.
