Cauliflower is an all-time favourite vegetable, but mostly deep-fried or sautéed in oodles of oil. As a healthy change from these formats, try this delicious Khatta Gobhi, a preparation of cauliflower in a sour curd-based gravy.

Not only is this recipe oil-free and low-cal, it is also excessively tasty and nutritious, brimming with the goodness of vitamin C and calcium.

Flavoured excitingly with a semi-spicy paste, this wholesome treat is a brilliant accompaniment to steaming hot parathas .
