spicy, rich gobhi. My favourite shahi sabzi. Goes well with naan or kulcha. A must try recipe for cauliflower lovers.

Par boiled cauliflower and green peas cooked in tomato purée and curds and rich Indian spices. Cut the ghee and this will be an extremely healthy vegetable. For me, the paste taste is out of the world and that what makes this vegetable special.
