Last week-end, my husband was craving gobi matar which is cauliflower and green peas curry.
Instead of the green peas, I used green beans since I didn’t have green peas in the fridge and it was as delicious 🙂
If you have the base spices used in Indian cooking, this recipe is very easy and takes about 30 min. I used the Gobi Matar recipe from Sanjeev Kapoor as guide line.
Cauliflower: 1 medium, separated into florets
Green beans: 1 cup
Tomato: 1/2 medium, chopped
Cumin seeds: 1 teaspoon
Ginger paste: 1 teaspoon
Garlic: 1 head, chopped
Coriander powder: 2 teaspoon
Red Chili powder: up to 1/2 teaspoon (I only put some using the head of my knife since I don’t like when it is spicy)
Turmeric powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Garan masala: 1 teaspoon
Heat some olive oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Once they start changing color, add the garlic and ginger paste and sauted for hald a minute. You will start smelling the ginger.
Add coriander powder, turmeric powder and red chilli powder and sauted for another half a minute.
Add the chopped tomato and cook until it becomes mushy.
Add cauliflower, green beans and 1 cup water. Salt and mix well.
Cook for about 8 to 10 min. Add the Garam masala, mix and cook for another 8 to 10 min.
You can garnish with fresh coriander leaves and eat with roti or paratha.
