  • Remove any dirt or bugs from the cauliflower by steaming it with turmeric powder (optional). 
  • The onion tomato masala can be made rich and creamy by adding some cashew paste. This one tastes like aloo gobi at a restaurant. This stir fry can also be made with ghee instead of oil for a richer taste.
  • Different variations can be made by adding beans, carrots, or green peas.
  • Sabji should not be overcooked. There should be a bite to the cauliflower florets, but they should not be soggy.
