Dry Cauliflower Sabzi {For Roti}

Dry Cauliflower Sabzi{For Roti}
Among the very many recipe requests I get on the blog,the one which tops the list is 'side dish for chapathi',so much so that I feel I owe to all of you who write in to introduce a new section on this blog for the same,really.It is a question which haunts me too-making chapathi dough is a breeze in the food processor and making chapathi does not take much time either.All the time is lost in thinking what to make as a side dish for the chapathi.

I had a go-north-indian phase a while back where I tried a new dish every day,from paneer to gobi to aloo,I made them all.But then we realized it was beating the purpose.We were having rotis as part of our weight loss regime and if I started to pair them with calorie laden dishes,we might as well have dal-chawal for dinner!

So in my new mission to try out sabjis for roti,this one is the first on the list.Cauliflower always works out as a good side for rotis-aloo gobi,cauliflower kurma and cauliflower sabzi.This one is no different-simple,delicious and gets done in a jiffy.
