Cauliflower Butter Masala/Gobi Butter Masala

Whoever love paneer will definitely love Paneer butter masala, and whoever love cauliflower will definitely love this lipsmacking gobi paneer masala. Yes trust me this gobi paneer masala is absolutely fingerlicking if you serve them simply with rotis or naan. Actually i never thought to making out this much rich looking gravy with cauliflower earlier. While going through Pari's space, i got hooked to this cauliflower butter masala and i tried it at home two days back for our dinner. Trust me, my lil one who loves cauliflower in fritters enjoyed thoroughly this gobi butter masala. Obviously this dish is approved by everyone at home.


Cauliflower this annual plant produced by seeds contains sulfarophane,a sulfur compound has been shown to kill cancer stem cells for slowing tumor growth.Cauliflower contains recommended daily value of vitamin C,its also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, magnesium, vitamin B6. Cauliflower is an extremely versatile vegetable, you can eat it raw, steamed, or else by cooking with spices or just simply by baking. Cauliflower contains antioxidants, obviously its really adviced to add this vegetable often in your diet. Now coming to this lipsmacking gravy, it takes hardly less time to get cooked and cauliflower cooked in onion-tomato based gravy tastes fabulous with mild spiciness and bit crunchiness.
