Gobhi Mussallam

Gobhi Mussallam

Another tasty veg dish…..Preparation for microwave oven. My love for food and cooking make me to browse websites and this is another beauty that I got from one of the websites.


  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup onions-chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup onion-grated
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seed powder
  • 1 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes-blanched, peeled and chopped fine
  • 1 cup tomatoes-pureed and strained
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Garam masala & cardamom powder for garnishing

Cut stem of the cauliflower right till the base and prick with a sharp knife all over. Mix together the water, lemon juice and the salt. Take the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and add the lime juice mixture. Cook covered at MicroHi (MH) for 12-15 mins so that it will be cooked but firm. Remove and keep aside. Place oil in the bowl and cook uncovered at HI for 1 min. Add the onions and cook uncovered at HI for 5 mins, stirring once, to a light brown. Add the grated onions, mix well and cook uncovered at HI for 5 mins, stirring once. Add the ginger-garlic paste and cook uncovered at HI for 1 min. Add the coriander, cumin, chilli, turmeric powders along with tomatoes. Cook covered at HI for 5 mins. Add the blended tomato and cook covered at 70% for 5 mins. Add salt to this gravy. Place the cauliflower upside-down to the gravy and cover with it. Cook covered at 70% for 10 mins, with stirring once in between. Serve hot garnished with cardamom powder and the garam masala.
