As I was finishing up cooking for lunch,I got few florets of Cauliflower(left from making this sabzi)and the last of my frozen green peas.I also had some peeled shallots in the fridge so decided to put everything together.Do you add different vegetables in a stir-fry and call it a mix veg stir fry too;),I'd love to know!
Simple Cauliflower & Green Peas Stir fry
Cauliflower florets - about 2 cups,chopped
Fresh/Frozen Green peas - 1/3 cup
Haldi/Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Shallots/Pearl onions - 5-6,sliced
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Sambhar powder* - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Clean the cauliflower florets in several changes of water.In a pan,add haldi and warm to the touch water and add cauliflower and green peas(if frozen) and keep aside for a few minutes till you get everything else ready.
In a kadai,add oil and splutter mustard seeds.Mix in the sliced shallots and curry leaves till the shallots start turning golden brown.
Lower the flame and add sambhar powder and saute for a minute or so taking care not to burn.
Drain the cauliflower and green peas and mix it in.Add enough salt to taste and sprinkle about a tbsp or so water and close the kadai with a lid.
Simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes.
*If you do not have ready made Sambhar powder,you can use a mix of red chilly powder and dhania powder.
