MW Methi Gobi

First thing i did once we came from our summer vacation was we went immediately to my routine farmer's market to get some fresh veggies,somehow i missed touching those fresh veggies in India, coz my MIL who was an expert in getting veggies by bargaining never allowed me to purchase veggies or fruits there..Its was quite hard for a foodie like me,anyhow the vendors in India change their prices whenever they saw us, even its happened in many shops..Personally July and august wasnt  best  to visit Pondicherry coz most of the pondicherrians living in France visit pondicherry during this month coz of summer vacation and everything seems to be costly at this time, we cant change some rules na..This weekend i got some fresh methi leaves from Indian groceries and finally prepared this delicious methi gobi through microwave oven for our yesterday's lunch..Its took less than twenty minutes to get ready in mw oven and we enjoyed this healthy methi gobi with curd rice, you can also serve it very well as side dish for rotis without any hesitation.


1no Cauliflower (medium size)
1/2cup Fresh methi leaves (slightly chopped)
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Pav bhaji masala
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
Salt
Oil
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves,cloves,cinnamon stick)
Few curry leaves

Take enough oil,whole spices in a microwave safe bowl, cook in high for 2 minutes, add the chopped onions,chopped tomatoes,ginger garlic paste,curry leaves and salt to the spices,cook everything for 4-5minutes in high (stir in between)..meanwhile chop the cauliflower as florets and soak in hot water..

Add the cauliflower florets,methi leaves to the cooked veggies along with red chilly powder,coriander powder,pav bhaji masala,garam masala powder, give a stir and cook in high for 5minutes (stir twice in between) until the veggies get well cooked..

Serve hot as side dish for rice or rotis..
