Dum Gobi

For today's dry saute, I chose to go with this Dum Gobi which I picked up from Tadka Masala, my partner in Blog Hop Wednesdays
The method of cooking this curry intrigued me into trying it. It was pretty good and I loved the taste of ajwain in this curry. So for Day 2 of this edition of BM #18, here is the recipe..

Ingredients -

Cauliflower florets 2 cups
Carrots sliced 1/2 cup
Peas handful (I used frozen peas)
Onions chopped 1/4 cup
Ginger grated 1/2 tsp
Yogurt 1/4 cup
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp 
Coriander-Cumin Powder 1 tsp
Garam Masala 1/4 tsp
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Ajwain 1/4 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Cloves 3-4, Cinnamon 1 inch pieces 2)

Dum Gobi

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After the cumin seeds crackle, saute chopped onions until they are translucent.

Add ginger and stir for a few seconds. Add yogurt, salt, turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander-cumin powder and let the flavors blend in.

Add the vegetables and mix well. Cover with a heavy lid so that the steam is trapped in. I put a tight fitting lid and placed another utensil filled with water.

Reduce the heat and let the vegetables cook for about 10-12 min.

Sprinkle garam masala and cook for a minute or two until the curry gets dry. Take care to see that the cauliflower florets don't get mushy. We want them to have a slight crunch.

Remove from fire and serve it as a side along with rice.
