Both cauliflower and paneer are sober ingredients, with similar colour and blandness, and so you might not have thought of combining them in one subzi. However, the Cauliflower Paneer Subzi turns out to be a true winner! The duo absorbs the flavours of the spice powders and tomato pulp quite well, resulting in a perky subzi that tingles the taste buds. Also, since both cook quickly, it takes less than half an hour to prepare and cook the Cauliflower Paneer Subzi, making it perfect for even the busiest of days.

If your fear is about the pungent taste that could come from the grated cauliflower- then i will strongly recommend you to set it side and go ahead and stir up this dish.. it is heavenly.. the cardamom gives a very unique taste to this dish making it thoroughly enjoyable..!!!
