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
SK’s Peppers and Cauliflower Bhaji
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 small cauliflower (cut into slices)
- 1 potato (cut into small cubes)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 2 peppers (cut into slices)
- 1 tomato (cut into small pieces)
- 1 tsp tomato puree (to thicken the bhaji)
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp chilli powder
- 2 tsp garam masala
- 2 tsp oil (we use sunflower)
- salt to taste
- 1/2 cup water
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.
|Heat up the oil in a saucepan |
|Add the onions and fry till they are soft and brown |
