Gobi matar Keema (Vegetable Keema)

  Gobi matar Bhurji or keema as it is called , is a quick and easy to make side dish. Gobhi means cauliflower in hindi while matar means green peas.

Keema is nothing but minced , that is very fine pieces of mutton or any vegetables used to make a spicy dish.

  This will goes well with rice , roti even dosa too. I had it with dosa it was so tasty.

Cauliflower florets – 2 cup
Peas – ½ cup
Onion – 1
Tomato – 2
Garlic – 2 cloves
Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ cup
Coriander powder – ½ tsp
Garam masala – ½ tsp
Salt as required

Method :
Chop the cauliflower into fine pieces . It can be grated.
Chop the onion and tomato to fine pieces.
Heat a tablespoon of oil in a nonstick pan , add the chopped cauliflower and sauté.
Sauté well till it is partial cooked that is slightly brown in colour.

Take off from flame and keep aside.
In the same pan , add the remaining oil and add the chopped onion and sauté well till it becomes translucent.
Add in the crushed garlic and tomato and sauté well .
When the tomato is mashed well , add in the chilli powder , coriander powder and turmeric powder and sauté for a minute.
Now, add the green peas and mix well.
