Bal's Awesome Grated Cauliflower & Peas
Bal's Spice Kitchen Served here as a side with Grilled Steak rubbed with Bal's Steak Masala
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
2 tbsp grapeseed oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger root (I store mine in the freezer - lasts longer and is easy to grate)
1 tbsp coriander seeds (I ran out of seeds so I used 1 heaping tsp of ground)
1 tbsp cumin seeds (same story as coriander seeds)
1 tsp ground turmeric
salt to taste
1 tomato chopped (I actually used 1 tbsp tomato paste instead)
1 small cauliflower, grated
1 cup frozen peas
1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and ginger and cook for about 4 minutes. You want the onion soft and translucent.
2. Stir in the spices and cook for about 15 seconds - just until you can smell the wonderful aroma. Add the tomato (or paste) and cauliflower. Toss well and cook until the cauliflower is tender ( 12-15 minutes). It it starts to stick before the cauliflower is done add a 1-2 tbsp water and cover.
3. Add the peas and cook for a few minutes until they are cooked and coated with the spices.
This is a wonderful side for grilled meat, chicken, fish and soooo good by itself as a leftover lunch the next day.
