Gobi Matar Masala | Gobi Matar Curry | Cauliflower Peas Curry

>>  Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Cauliflower is in season right now and one can see piles of cauliflowers on the road side hawkers selling these. It's such a beautiful sight seeing those huge flowers, all white and green, piled on each other. It literally begs to be bought. Many a time I think I should carry my camera just to capture the scene but fail to do that. 

When I decided to make Bihari dishes, I checked if they have a gobi recipe listed. Though there were other recipes, none that suited me for making for lunch or for rotis. Then I came across this Aaloo Matar that I wanted to make and decided to replace the aloo with gobi, so we ended with Gobi matar.

Looks yummy :) How do you get the gravy part? Do I have to add onion paste/tomato puree or anything else to make the gravy thick?

Yummy curry. Love to have with chappathis...

Meera These days I tend to add almost grated onions so that it gives the gravy. Else if you want it little rich you can add cashew paste or even curds.

Thank you everybody

You say "Ginger Garlic Paste - 3/4" by this 3/4 teaspoons or tablespoons. I'm writing from Scotland so to me knowledge I hadn't seen Ginger Garlic Paste for sale here so how would I make it. Great recipe but I just need this clarified.

Lifeartist Thanks for pointing out, have updated the's 3/4 of a teaspoon. Please refer my post for making GG paste
