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’!!
