Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Kheema Gobhi

Its winter time and the time we get yummy, fresh and tender cauliflower… the flowers that begged to be picked up and get quickly made, so I have been making a lot of gobhi a lot of ways and one of my all time favorites is “Kheema Gobhi… This is a recipe which I fondly remember as a major winter comfort food and that too a comfort food which is healthy too… isn’t that rare?

So here I share one of my all time favorite gobhi recipe


  • one medium size cauliflower
  • 2 onion grated
  • 3 large tomatoes pureed
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2-3 cloves
  • 4-5 peppercons
  • 1 big black cardamom
  • 1 1inch piece of cinnamom
  • 1 tbsp dhaniya powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • salt and chilli powder to taste
  • 1 tbsp oil


  • Grate gobhi with the use of a large crater or cut in very finely like this

  • Heat oil in a non stick pan and add cumin and roast till they turn golden brown in color
  • Add all the sabut masalas and fry for 2 minutes
  • Add onions and fry till golden brown
  • Add tomatoes for 4-5 minutes till done
  • Add turmeric, dhaniya powder, salt and chilli powder
  • Add the gobhi, sprinkle a little water and cook for about 10 mins till the gobhi is done
  • Garnish with corrainder leaves and serve with roti

    Oh Yes…its YUMMMYY..

    I make it too often…quick and easy and delicious.

    One more addition…I add two beaten eggs to it towards the end… Mix them all well and cook all this a bit till gobhi gets wrapped well by eggs and all seems cooked 🙂
