Gobi ke Denthal ki Sabzi is a deliciously tangy and spicy everyday vegetable made from cauliflower stalks and leaves. Best out of waste!!
Delicious dry vegetable made in mustard oil that is served at homes as part of an everyday meal in Punjab.
Everyday Indian curries and sabzi are very different from the oil-soaked gravies that you find in restaurants. Simple and wholesome food that tastes good and is healthy too.
I have always been interested in dishes made from unusual ingredients. So when world over we are talking of reducing wastage especially food waste we have this the theme today as #BestFromWaste at FoodieMondayBlogHop. Who else will suggest such a “bhannat” idea but yours truly!!!
The reason is that we buy cauliflower every week hubby loves it. The stalks I have always used to make stock for soups and gravy. Since I have read about the vegetable that my friend Ritu had posted I have been itching to make it. I requested her the recipe and she kindly shared it with me. Do try it and enjoy.
The ingredients to make Gobi ke Danthal ki Sabzi:
Stalks and leaves of Cauliflower: Normally I tell my greengrocer to cut off the stalks and leaves of cauliflower but I kept the nutrient-rich stalks of cauliflower and fibre rich stalks.
Mustard Oil: the flavours of the vegetable comes out with mustard oil. Mustard oil is an acquired taste so if you do not like it try with regular oil.
Onion and Tomato: finely chopped onions and tomatoes.
Ginger and Garlic: I used paste but you can use minced ginger and garlic.
Spices: green chillies, cumin seeds, chaat masala, garam masala, turmeric, red chilli powder.
How to make Gobi ke Danthal ki Sabzi:
Wash and chop the gobi stalks. You can make them in 2 inch long pieces but in my place, we prefer smaller pieces so I chopped it up. I discarded the tougher stalks but you can use them too.
Finely chop the onions and tomatoes.
Heat the mustard oil add the cumin seeds, saute the onions and ginger and garlic.
Fry the tomatoes till mushy and the oil comes out.
Add the gobi stalks stir well. Cook till done but still crunchy.
Serve garnished with coriander leaves.
