No. of servings
Ingredients1 lg cauliflower, broken into medium florets
2 - 3 medium potatoes (or a second cauliflower)
8 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 med. onions, finely chopped
2 inch piece ginger, cut into tiny cubes
2 medium tomatoes, grated or minced
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 - 2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp water
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp ground roasted cumin seeds
InstructionsHeat oil in a large skillet, Dutch oven or wok over medium heat. Quarter potatoes then cut each quarter into 3 wedges. Fry potatoes until browned and barely cooked. Drain on paper towels. Fry cauliflower until golden. Drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp oil. Add onions and fry
until barely soft. Add ginger, fry until medium brown. Add tomatoes, salt, cayenne, turmeric and coriander. Fry until the tomatoes have darkened a bit.

Return potatoes and cauliflower to the pan. At this point you may stop if you are making the dish ahead of time. In fact, letting the dish rest a couple of hours lets the flavors infuse the potatoes. Add the water, cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle the garam masala and roasted cumin powder over the dish, stir gently and serve. How to roast cumin: heat a small frying pan over medium to medium high heat. Add cumin seeds and shake pan continuously until the seeds have darkened slightly (its a good idea to have unroasted seeds out for comparison). Toss into a coffee or spice grinder and grind into powder.

Punjabi Garam Masala (if you want to make your own or it isnt available)

5 Tbsp coriander seeds
3 Tbsp cumin seeds

Toast lightly in a skillet. Pour onto a plate and allow to cool.
Place into a grinder along with:

2 1/2 Tbsp black peppercorns
2 1/2 Tbsp black cardamom seeds
1 1/2 tsp green cardamom seeds
2 inch stick cinnamon
4 - 5 cloves
about 1/6 of a whole nutmeg

Grind to a fine powder. May be done in more than one batch. Place in a tightly sealed container and store in the *freezer*.
