Cauliflower capsicum dry

Though being a non vegetarian I have fascination for vegetables. I keeps on experimenting with various vegetables which are easily available and good to taste. Cauliflower and Capsicum are the most common vegetables and my favorite too. This time I think of combining both in a single recipe. This recipe is very simple, easy to cook which will go really well with parathas and chapattis. When guest comes in the morning, and you don't have any plans what to cook for breakfast, this is the best preparation you can serve with parathas for breakfast.


1 Medium size cauliflower (Cut into small florets)
2 Capsicum (cut lengthwise)
2 Tomatoes (Sliced)
1 Large onion(sliced)
6 Clove garlic (crushed)
3 Slitted green chillis
1 tsp. cumin (whole)
1 tsp.turmeric powder
1tsp coriander powder.
1 tsp. red chilli powder
1 tsp. garam masala powder.
20 gms. cashewnut (grind to make a fine paste)
1 tsp. salt.
Sugar(a pinch)
Coriander leaves for garnishing.


1. Cut the vegetables (Cauliflower, Capsicum andTomatoes) and keep aside.

2 heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds. Now add crushed Garlic. Fry for sometime and then add sliced onion and fry. When the onion becomes soft add cauliflower. Add turmeric powder and salt according to taste and saute for about 5 minutes.

3 Add lengthwise cutted capsicum and sliced tomato and stir it. Add coriander powder and red chilli powder. Stir ocassionally and cover it with a lid.

4 Remove the lid after 6 to 8 minutes and add cashewnut paste and garam masala powder and mix well with the vegetables. cover it and let it cook for another with ocassional stirring.

5 When the cauliflower and capsicum becomes tender add apinch of sugar. Stir andremove from fire.

Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves and serve it with parathas.

I tried the recipe for Lunch and it came out well...I added few raisins along with the cashews while making the paste and it added a great flavour to the dish..

Hi Sunanda,

In my home my wife does all the cooking... but she is traveling now, so I was forced to cook.

I found 2 capsicums and 1 cauli flower in our fridge and was wondering what to do with them. I googled around and found your blog.

Your recipe was simple and good. The curry came out great. I could not believe I could cook something that nice. I had to use almonds instead of cashews, but it still tasted great.

If my wife comes to know that I can cook this well, she will ask me to help her with cooking, so I am planning to be silent about it :-).

(I think you forgot to say when to add the cut chillis. I added them after onions.)

Thanks and keep posting your recipes!
