Cauliflower poriyal

One of those quickie side dishes where the main vegetable is allowed to highlight the taste of the dish.


Ingredients:

Cauliflower. chopped into 1cm pieces: 1 cup
Onions. chopped fine: 1 cup
powders - coriander, jeera, garam masala, red chili : to taste (i use like 1/4 tsp of each and about 1/2 tsp of chili powder)
jeera: 1/2 tsp
salt, curry leaves and coriander leaves

Heat some oil, add the jeera, onions and fry well.
Add the powders and salt. After a couple of minutes add the gobi. Mix well.
On high heat, add about 1/2 cup of water. Cook for a few minutes until water has evaporated and the cauliflower is soft. Add the chopped curry and coriander leaves and cook for a few more minutes until some of the gobi has browned.
Serve as a side with rice. Also makes a tasty sandwich filling.
