As the name suggests, an aromatic preparation of Cauliflower with minty and sour attributes. I like to serve this as a vegetable side if I am making say pasta or roast chicken for main course.


1 bunch mint leaves, cleaned and chopped.
1-2 green chillies
3 cloves garlic
1 pod aniseed (smashed) / 1 tsp fennel seed
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon whole black pepper
1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets. I personally like to slice the florets since they are easier to fry and consume less oil.
1/2 onion, sliced.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon salt and sugar, each.


Step 1
Put florets in deep container and sprinkle turmeric and salt over the florets. Play \

Step 2
Grind in a blender, all ingredients of the spice paste with 1/4 cup water to a very fine paste. Do not try to taste/ smell the green monster in its raw form, no matter how aromatic and inviting.\r\n

Step 3
Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan, add cracked cumin, coriander. Add the onions and let them work out and sweat for about 5 minutes.\r\n

Step 4
Add the spice paste, let cook for 2 minutes. The green monster may turn brown but that is okay.\r\n

Step 5
Reduce heat to low and add beaten yogurt, fried florets, salt and sugar.\r\n

Step 6
Cook till florets are soft, it should not take more than 5 -7 minutes. If you think that the florets are too raw to eat, add 1/4 cup water and cook covered for additional 5 minutes.\r\n
