Gobi Matar Masala


I like cauliflower/gobi so does DH. This is the way I usually cook gobi.

The curry goes very well with rotis, do give it a try.

Gobi Matar Masala 

(Cauliflower & Peas Curry)


2 Cups  Gobi Flowerets

1/2  Cup Peas

2-3 Tbsp Tomato Sauce

1 Tsp Red Chilli Powder

Garam Masala- to taste

1/2 Tsp Turmeric

Dry Roast :

1 Tsp Dhania

1/2 Tsp Cumin

6 – 8 Cashewnuts

1″  Cinammon

1  Clove

Grind  the dry roasted ingredients with :

1 Onion

2-3 Green Chilles

1 Garlic – Big clove

1 Ginger – Small piece


Heat 2 Tbsps of oil, when hot add the ground masala.

Add the red chilli powder, Turmeric & Garama masala powders.

Mix & fry the masala well, until oil separates from it.

I microwave the washed flowerets to reduce cooking time.

You can skip cooking gobi & directly add to the  gravy.

Mix well until the gobi is coated with the masala.

Add peas, salt & a cup of water.

Simmer the curry for a few minutes.

Adjust the spices if needed & add the tomato sauce now.

Cook further for a few more minutes just until the gobi is cooked but not mashed up.

    yumm i too love gobi. But the taste of gobi from India has a very different taste than from the gobi we cook here. Your dish rightly goes very well with chapatis and rotis

    That’s a good looking gobi curry. I do it the same way too except the part of microwaving cauliflower. That’s a really neat idea. will try it next time to avoid an extra step. Good picture.
