Achari Gobi(Pickled Cauliflower)-Potluck Party

Few days ago, I came across a Gobi recipe that was so good in appearance, spicy and the recipe was also fantastic. I decided to try it soon and what happend next was I forgot about its whereabouts and the blog where I had seen that . I searched and searched everywhere, but there was no much time as kids would reach anytime soon. So decided to  google for the recipe. When I don't have time I stick to Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe which gives me a bit of confidence and then adjust the recipe to my taste buds.This time I had to add chilli and coriander powder which was not there in his recipe. The dish was overall finger licking good and now I got a dish which I could serve to my dad. He always complain us that we fry cauliflower everytime. lol. whether it was Cauliflower Delight, Manchurian,Bajji or Aloo Gobi. He is a health freak.

I'm taking this dish to Potluck Party-Cyber Style hosted by Jagruti this time. I have been on this group since a few months ago -a naughty member I must say. I participated in just 2 or 3 events cos of  ups and downs in my personal life. But from hereon I'm planning to participate everymonth and for that I'm scheduling this post a few days prior to the event. I don't want to miss it.


Ingredients:

Cauliflower      1 medium
Onion               1 medium
Mustard oil        2 tbsp
Mustard seed     1/2 tsp

Garlic paste                                       1tsp
Yogurt                                              3/4 cup
Red Chilli powder                            1tsp
Coriander powder                            1tsp

Method:

1. Heat mustard oil a non-stick pan upto its smoking point. Take it out of flame, cool slightly and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, fennel seeds, crushed cumin seeds, onion seeds and asafoetida and bring it back to flame. Saute till the seeds splutter. 

2. Add onion and sauté till translucent. 
3. Add cauliflower florets, turmeric powder and salt.
