Cauliflower or Gobhi is very common vegetable in Indian kitchen, generally I prepared aloo gobhi or gobhi ke parathe for lunchboxes. But sometime for a change we made gobhi matar ki sabzi or you can say gobhi keema recipe.
For this recipe, you have to slightly cook the gobhi in oil and then saute with tomato masala and boiled peas. This recipe is perfect option for lunch menus or lunchboxes. You can serve this gobhi matar sabzi with bowl of dal and curd as side dish. Gobhi matar ki sabzi is very simple to cook and healthy side dish which liked by all in my family.
What are the Benefits of Cauliflower?
Everyone loves gobhi or cauliflower and its very popular ingredient in some comfort food recipes such as Indian Pakoras, Punjabi Parathas, Indian curries and many more. It keeps your bones healthy and reduces the high blood pressure. It keeps your eyes in good shape, maintains hormonal balance, help you to lose weight and flushes out the toxins from your body.
Cauliflower contains antioxidants that help to strengthen the immune system. One regular serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C. It is also a good source of Vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, manganese phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium and manganese. It is very low in fats and that comes from unsaturated fats and Omega-3 fatty acids.
