This is one of the healthy sabzi recipes that can be made on day to day basis. At home we love cauliflower, so I make it at least once a week.

Cauliflower and cabbage are the two vegetables that we never get tired of eating. So this sabzi and cabbage sabzi are my go to recipes.

This is not punjabi style aloo gobi recipe where onion tomato are sauteed first then mixed with potatoes and cauliflower. I do make that version once in awhile. But today’s sabzi is the SIMPLE and EASY made with minimal ingredients. Also this is no onion no garlic recipe.

Here I have used very basic and few spices. No garam masala is added. With less spices, you will get the best flavors. So please do not overpower the taste with too many spice powders.

Occasionally I add a handful of green peas into it for a change.

1) First wash, peel and cube the potatoes. Then cut the cauliflower into florets, keep them in colander and rinse them well. Let the excess water drain out. I like to cut them into small bite sized florets. Many prefer the bigger sized, it’s the personal preference. Just keep in mind that keep the potato cubes and floret size almost same, so both get cooked at the same time.

2) Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Once hot add cumin seeds and let them sizzle.
