SK’s Peppers and Cauliflower Bhaji

What’s the worst thing that can happen to a food blogger? Digestion problems!

Without getting into the gory details let me inform you that I have subsisted wholly on a diet of yogurt and rice since last Thursday and can’t look at food without turning a delicate shade of green.

Anyway, sister in Switzerland has jumped to the rescue and has cooked this very photogenic Peppers and Cauliflower Bhaji. Here is her recipe

Peppers are also known as Capsicum in India. This very simple recipe looks and tastes delicious and can be had with rice or chappati.

  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp oil (we use sunflower)

To give this dish an added kick, SK recommends substituting the garam masala with some ready made Pav Bhaji masala that you get in most Indian stores.
