Sliced eggplant pan fried in very little oil and then layered with spiced yogurt followed by a drizzle of tempered hot oil! Doi Begun is a popular Bengali eggplant curry, except I make it little untraditional way. Typically yogurt will be cooked along with the spices and eggplant. This recipe doesn't call for that which makes it a very quick meal. It's light on the tummy and great on warm days too.
Whole Roasted Cauliflower is a perfect, easy way to bring a veggie showstopper to your dinner table. Cauliflower, as we all know, is a beautiful canvas to play with flavors and this time, I went with mustard sauce. I roasted the cauliflower in a broth with some shallots and celery. The broth not only added flavor but also cooked the cauliflower to a perfect texture. With some crusty bread on the side, this would be a perfect cozy meal!
Achari Gobi is a unique North Indian cauliflower curry prepared in pickled sauce. The taste is tangy, spice filled with robust flavor. Achari meaning pickled and Gobi meaning cauliflower, is a quick 30 minutes meal. It goes very well with rice or Indian flat bread. I find cauliflower not only easy to cook but also one of those veggies which can help you get creative and stay healthy.
