Jeera Gobi / Cauliflower Sabzi With Cumin N Cilantro

       Again I am back with another interesting and flavor rich sabzi with Cauliflower/Gobi. This is a kind of dry sabzi with more onions and spices. I have a strong like/love to this combo - ginger,chilli,cilantro, the unique flavor n the strong spicy taste tempts me a lot....I have used this combination in many of my recipes like,Sweet corn Cilantro rice,Corn Adai,Gobi Paratha,Coconut chutney. I tried this recipe long back for Julie's EP series event ~ Cumin n cilantro but becoz of my health issue i couldn't able to send it in time. So Sorry dear!! I used blanched cauliflower florets for this sabzi and didin't cook it for long time, this way cauliflower stayed crunchy and absored all the spices and tasted so good. Do give it a try and let me know the result.
I am almost normal but still walking n standing hurting my knee, so don't want to strain much but at the same wanted to keep my blog live i am sharing some recipes in my drafts. Like before i am not able to spend much time sitting n checking all my fellow blogger's recipes that's y i am not commenting on any of your blogs these days :( To keep myself active n engaged i am decided to come and check all yours at least once in a week.
