Creamy cauliflower and peas subji



This is something my husband makes when we need a quick subji. I like the addition of yougurt to this subji. It is not much but the little bit goes a long way..

Ingredients:
- 1 cauliflower seperated into florets
- 1 cup cooked peas
- 2-3 tomatoes
- 1 small onion
- 4 tbsp yogurt

Fry and grind to a coarse paste:
- 2 tbsp coriander seeds
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 small stick cinnamon
- 1 bay leaves
- 2 cloves (They are strong so use just a few)
- 2 dried red chili (optional)
- 2 green chilies chopped (Remove seeds if you do not want the heat)
- 1 inch ginger chopped
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 tomato chopped
- 1 tsp oil
Add oil and add the spices first. Fry till they are slightly brown.  Then start adding your chilies, onions, tomatoes, ginger and fry till they become soft.  Cool this mixture.  Grind this to a paste and keep it aside.

Seasoning:
-1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp cumin seeds
- 1 tbsp kalonji/onion seeds
- 2 green chilies chopped (adjust to taste)

Method:
1. In a large pan add the oil, cumin seeds and chilies.  Fry till they are golden brown. Now add the chopped onion. Cook till it becomes soft.
2. Add the separated cauliflower and fry it with the onions. Keep the heat high.  You do not want your cauliflower to become mushy.  After about 5 min add your peas and tomatoes. Cook for another minute or two.
3. Add the ground masala and mix it well. Cover and cook till the vegetables turns soft.   Now turn off the heat and add the yogurt.  You add it at the end so that the yogurt does not curdle. Mix well and garnish with cilantro.

Serve it hot with rice or roti.
