Cauliflower Kheema / Gobi Kheema Recipe

Kheema / Keema is a minced meat curry but typically minced mutton curry is often mentioned as Kheema. But it can also be done with any kind of meat and even with fresh vegetables and soya. I have already shared the recipe for Soya Kheema/Soya Granules Kheema. And i have tried with crumbled Tofu and Cauliflower also. Today am sharing the Cauliflower kheema recipe. This is nothing but a grated caulfilower curry with peas and mild spices. This Gobi Keema pairs well with Rotis, Dosa and even as a sandwich filling. Or you can make it as a kati roll with some spiced onions, green chutney with plain paratha. Actually i wanted to present this Cauliflower keema like kati roll but, was run out of time hubby came for lunch little earlier that day so i clicked the pictures in a hurry. Later for my kids i made roll with this gobi keema and they liked it and surprisingly asked one more. This Gobi Keema is perfect for a mess free lunch box either with chapathis as roll or as a Keema Sandwich.
