Gujarati Series: Phulewar-Vatana Shaak

Phulewar-Vatana.....or Cauliflower and peas...the ultimate combo to be served with phulkas. I love this simple curry. It's simple because there aren't many ingredients.

Cauliflower and peas are sauteed in Mustard seeds, turmeric, ginger, salt and a pinch of tomatoes, no garam masalas, no chili powder...just plain goodness of cauliflower and peas, to be relished with a cup of home made yogurt and phulkas. One of my blog readers asked me for this recipe, and here it is. You will need:

  • 1 large Cauliflower- wash and drain, cut into florets and set aside.
  • 1 cup Green Peas - washed
  • 1 tbsp -Olive Oil or any oil you use
  • 1 tsp- Mustard Seeds
  • 1 tsp- Turmeric,
  • 1 small piece of ginger, 1 small jalapeño- chopped
  • Salt, Sugar - to taste
Wash the Cauliflower,drain and cut into florets. In a wide pan, heat some oil. Add the Mustard seeds and turmeric. When the mustard seeds start to pop, add the ginger and jalapeño. Now add the Cauliflower and peas. Stir for a few minutes until the peas turn bright green. Add the salt and sugar, cook until done. That's it. Serve hot.
