Cauliflower dry curry

Gobi ki tarkari (Cauliflower dry curry) is a very famous dish in Indo-Pak. It can be cooked in variety of styles. It is highly nutritious and very healthy. When I was a kid I never liked cauliflower, but there was one tarkari that my nano-maternal grandmother used to make which I loved it. It was this recipe of hers that made me love cauliflower. This dish is simple, easy to make and great in taste. It’s flavor is enhanced when mixed with spinach, all spices ( garam masala) and tomatoes.  It can be served with chapatti, phulka and boiled rice.
