Cauliflower is one of the vegetables that I have that in my fridge all the time. If it is about to finish, immediately I add that to the shopping list for next weekend grocery shopping.

As per the sabzi name, main ingredients are cauliflower and green bell pepper.  So basically gobi=cauliflower and shimla mirch=bell pepper or capsicum. Onion-tomato is also added to the dish which adds some texture and taste.

As you can see, all the healthy ingredients are used. thus, you can make this subzi on an everyday basis.

Key Ingredients:

Cauliflower: In the USA, it is available all year around and I have never faced any problem of having bugs or worms in it.

But in India, when cauliflowers are not in season you need to be very careful and need to check it properly for the bugs. It is like the very annoying process to check each and every floret. So here is my mom’s trick How to clean cauliflower – separate the florets, take enough warm water in a bowl, mix in salt and turmeric powder. Soak the florets in this water for 10-15 minutes. If it has worms then it will float on the surface of the water. remove them and wash and rinse the florets again well.

Capsicum (bell pepper or Shimla mirch): Here green bell pepper is used. For the variation, you can add red pepper or yellow pepper or combination of any. The sabzi will looks so colorful and eye catching. I love capsicum, have you tried my capsicum curry recipe?

Kasoori Methi: This recipe calls for the good amount of dried fenugreek leaves. This gives really nice flavors and gives an extra kick to the flavors. So don’t even think of skipping it.
