Cauliflower peas and potatoes

This healthy meal is a favorite in our family, the cauliflower, peas and potatoes give you a great balanced meal. This is a traditional Gujarati dish, part of a thali eaten with chapatis, this is one you must try and send us photos of.

Supermarkets have all the ingredients frozen ready to cook. e.g. the cauliflower just need to be cook as normal then when they are soft cut them into smaller pieces.

This dish is one of our family favourites dishes and it is perfect for those days when you don’t have much time to cook and you are super hungry. Sometimes we use the frozen cauliflower which can take a little longer to thaw but still tastes amazing, other times we use the fresh cauliflower which is cut into 2cm pieces and if you cut the potatoes in the same size it will help cook the ingredients equally. There is nothing worse than an uncooked potato but if you follow the simple steps below i’m sure you will create the perfect dish.

Before starting the dish its a good idea to have everything prepared and tidy up as you go, also if you do not have any peas then it is ok to leave it out. Please give this Indian vegetarian dish a go and leave a comments on our facebook page or follow us on twitter on @ranju1960  we would love to see your pictures. Sharing is caring, we hope to hear from you soon
