Gobi Matar Recipe is a popular Indian stir fry cauliflower peas in turmeric and Indian spices. Served with fresh lemon juice and chopped cilantro on top. It can be eaten with Indian roti/flatbread/paratha/rice/quinoa or as is. This is a vegan, glutenfree recipe.
Gobi Matar or Gobhi Matar is a staple Indian dish that gets made almost every week at our place and I especially love eating it with paratha.
If you are from Northern India or traveled to North India or eaten Northern Indian cuisine, then you’d be very familiar with this recipe as it’s a quintessential part of the cuisine.
As popular as this dish is, it’s extremely simple to make and the ingredients can be easily found in almost ALL kitchen.
Also, one very important thing about this dish is that it can be served as an entree or side and also known as Dhaba or Restaurant Style Gobi Matar.
Cauliflower (Gobi) – cleaned and chopped into bite-size florets
Peas (Matar) – can be frozen or fresh.
Onion – can be red/white or yellow.
Indian Spices: Turmeric, Salt, Chili Powder, Coriander Powder
Fresh Cilantro – please don’t skip this ingredient, adds so much flavor.
One of my favorite thing about this recipe apart from taste, ease is that you can use the entire cauliflower in it. You can use the floret, roots and even the tender leaves.
Once the recipe is ready, you can serve immediately or store in an air-tight box (once veggies are cool).
Always store once the veggies have cooled as this helps remove that extra watery droplet you get on top of covers when cooling a hot dish.
If you have ever wondered or worried that the spices/flavors are not even in your veggies, then this tip will be your secret weapon.
To make an even flavored dish, especially veggies, mix raw chopped veggies with spices in a large bowl.
Make sure the spices are evenly coated on the chopped veggies and keep this aside for 2 minutes.
This helps veggies coat n absorb some of the flavors right there n then (even before you have begun cooking).
Then proceed with the recipe further and I can literally bet, your veggies would come out tasting evenly flavored Everytime!
Perfect recipe if you are detoxing or deep into #veganuary
