  • 1 medium head cauliflower (separated into florets)
  • 1 large onion (sliced into half-moons)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne (use less cayenne or sub with paprika for less heat)
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Boil water in a pot and drop the cauliflower florets into it. Bring back to a boil and let the cauliflower cook for about three minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat the oil. Add the cumin seeds and, when they sputter, add the onions and a little salt. Saute until the onions turn translucent, about five minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and the powdered spices. Stir and let the tomatoes cook until they break down and start to express the oil.
  • Add the cauliflower florets and stir well. Cover and cook a few more minutes or until the cauliflower is al dente. You don't want it to turn soft and mushy. Add salt as needed. Season with some fresh chopped cilantro.
