Cauliflower channa curry (Hookoosu kadale palya )

Cauliflower is one vegetable which I can eat in any format any taste. Did you know, Cauliflower was available almost exclusively in Italy until the 16th century when it was introduced to France and eventually to other areas of Europe. What ever it is I love all the dishes made by cauliflower and I am ever grateful for the person who created gobi manchurian :)

Now for this curry that I made today..

Cauliflower - 1 cup cut into small florets and boiled in hot water (remember to add turmeric and salt to the water :) )
Kadala / Channa - 1/2 cup sprouted and boiled in hot water for 5 mins
Tomato - 1 large
Coconut scraped - 1 tbsp

To be ground into a fine paste:
Onion - 1 med
Garlic cloves - 3
Ginger - 1/2"
green chillis - 4
cloves - 5
cinamon - 1/2"
Pepper - 8 - 10

Heat oil in a pan, add the ground paste and fry till raw smell of onion goes off
Puree the tomato and Coconut and add to this.
Keep frying on med flame for 6 - 8 mins
Add cauliflower and channa..
Mix well. Add 1/2 cup water and salt
Cook on low flame for 5- 7 mins.
Serve with chapati.

This and chapati is my LBR for today
