Cauliflower Peas Poriyal

Cauliflower is a childhood favorite for me.My mom used to dip the florets in batter and fry it. The moment it was out of the kadai, me and my brother went rushing to it.(imm the childhood days when we didn't have to worry about oil and calorie intake................!) so now instead of frying it all the time, we have to make variations to the way of cooking right!
  • 1 Cup Cauliflower florets(cut finely)
  • 1/2 cup Peas
  • 1 Large onion(chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp chilly powder
  • 1/4 tsp Garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp G/G paste(ginger/garlic)
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 Tsp urad dal
  • Salt to taste.
Wash the cauliflower florets thoroughly.
Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds and urad dal.
When the mustard seeds pop add chopped onion and saute.
Now add the G/G paste,cauliflower, peas and saute.
Now add the garam masala, salt, and red chilly powder.
Cover and cook. keep stirring it often.
Cauliflower lets out water when cooked, so add verry little water if required.
This poriyal is great with plain rice and any bland curry.(sambar,mor kulambu,rasam, curdsetc..) This can also be had with chappati.
