Gobhi Matar/ Cauliflower with Peas


Cauliflower is known as gobi or gobhi in Hindi.Gobi is an integral vegetable in the Indian menu.They are easy to prepare yet sumptuous. Gobhi is used in variety of Indian dishes from rice to sabzis..

Cauliflower (Gobhi) is a highly nutritious vegetable, contains many nutrients that can help prevent a range of diseases from cancer and detoxification process. Cauliflower also contains vitamin C and folate.Three florets of cauliflower a day will provide you with 67% of your daily vitamin C requirement

When purchasing cauliflower, make sure the tops are white. If the floret has begun to spot brown or purple, it is past its nutritional peak.

Gobhi is my husbands fav veggie but in my list gobhi doesn't come on the top but i like gobhi parathas &i can have those everyday:)..This is my mom's recipe..

TIP:- Wash the cauliflower a night before and let it dry overnight..it will prevent the sabzi to get watery while cooking..

Dear Preety,

Thank you for the lovely comments..Its okay if you don't have condensed milk. You can boil the regular milk to condense into 1/4th of its original quantity and use it.

Enjoy..!!
