Servings 4 people


  • 1 no medium sized cauliflower
  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup pudina or mint leaves
  • 1 no small capsicum
  • 4 nos green chillies
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt to taste


  • Wash the cauliflower very thoroughly under cold running water and then dice them into medium-sized florets.
  • In a blender, grind coriander leaves, mint/pudina leaves, capsicum (after de-seeding), and green chilies. Grind them all in a fine paste with some water.
  • In a pan, pour a couple of tbsp of any cooking oil (preferably white oil) and sauté the cauliflowers in medium heat.
  • Sprinkle some salt as per taste. Do not raise the heat too much or you will burn them. You want to cook them lightly by placing a cover and stirring from time to time.
  • Once the cauliflowers are half done, raise the heat for about a minute till it becomes a little golden brown.
  • At this point, add the puree and mix it well. Cook the puree till the raw smell goes off and once the cauliflowers are fully cooked all the way through, add ½a tsp of sugar and a blob of butter.
  • Turn off the heat and you can also break a couple of green chilies in the end and cover with a lid to give some extra flavor and punch.
  • Serve it with some rice or hand-rolled chapati, paratha or even luchi.
