Lemon Mint Cauliflower

Lemon Mint Cauliflower

Lemon Mint Cauliflower:

Lemony Cauliflowers. Tangy Cauliflower Poriyal. Neembu flavoured Gobi. Gobi Masala. Gobi Subzi.

Cauliflowers and Potatoes are considered Vegetarian’s chicken, at several places! So, it became compulsary for me to fix these veggies for my vegetarian companian and friends! Otherwise, why would I, in the hell care to fix these vegetables, right! According to me…making vegetables palatable is one of the tuffest job…so I go through every level of spicing it up!! When I got tired of the usuals ‘cauliflowe korma’ and ‘paratha’…jumped into easy fix concept of ‘poriyal/subzi’!!


Cauliflower 1 whole head
Lemon 1 fruit
Mint leaves fistful – finely chopped
Ginger 2″grated
Turmeric powder 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Butter few cubes.

Powder These:

Fennel seeds 1/2 spoon
Coriander seeds 1 spoon
Cumin seeds 1 spoon
Cloves 3
Cinnamon 1 stick.


In a wide wok, mealt butter/ heat oil.

Add the spice blend, followed by ginger and cauliflowers. Add salt, cover and cook till tender.

Once the flower is kind of semi-done, add turmeric and chili powders. Mix through.

Finally add lemon juice and mint leaves…stir-fry over high for quick 2 minutes and set aside.

Enjoy with your meals.
