Chandra Aunty’s Sautéed Gobi

Chandra Aunty makes a sautéed gobi (cauliflower) dish which is the star of any dinner at home. The gobi is soft, rich and tender but has a perfect crusting of spices. I convinced her to share her recipe with us. Enjoy!
1 cauliflower Head – break apart with your hands into bite size pieces.
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil- extra virgin or regular
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of heeng
Fresh cilantro

Heat oil over medium-high in a Dutch oven or non-stick pan. Add cumin seed and a pinch of heeng. Then add the evenly cut cauliflower. Sauté till all the water dries out and the cauliflower is lightly browned, lid can be on or off while stirring. Add the paprika, turmeric and coriander and mix well while turning the heat down to low, now keep the lid on. Mix everything well. Then add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin. Once nicely browned take the lid off for a min and add fresh cilantro. Serve with rice, preferably basmati rice.
