Cauliflower Peas Curry | Cauliflower Peas Poriyal

Cauliflower peas poriyal, an easy to make delicious accompaniment !!! Cauliflower and peas (Gobi Mutter )are such a awesome combination and it tastes good in any curries or dry masala. You can see this combination or potato & peas combo often in my kitchen when fresh peas are in season.

Here in today's recipe, i have used freshly grounded spice mix made from fennel seeds and pepper corns for great flavor. Fennel flavor goes really well with cauliflower. If you haven't use it before, trust me and give it a try. You can use few fennel seeds in tempering or little bit of fennel powder while making cauliflower next time!!!  

Ok, now let's see today's recipe, it tastes sooo good with just steamed rice and rasam.

Notes:
  • If your cauliflower has any worms, put it in the boiling water along with pinch of turmeric of couple of mins and then use it.
  • Fresh peas tastes good for this curry.
  • Fennel seeds gives great flavor to this curry.
  • I have used hand motor & pestle since it's very small quantity.  For large quantity, use mixie/blender for easy grinding and it stores well for few months in air tight container.
