Cauliflower Potato Masala Curry

#CauliflowerPotatoMasalaCurry : #Cauliflower is low in carbohydrates and low in fat. So those who are on diet can take plenty of cauliflower than rice. It is also a good source of Vitamin C.
Cauliflower is generally used in the preparation of manchurian, cauliflower 65, kuruma, and vegetable stir fry. But Cauliflower masala curry  in combination with boiled potato tastes very very good. I have also included some green peas which gives a different taste to the dish. 
Here comes the preparation.

Finally add onion pieces and run for few seconds only.
Onion should not be ground into fine paste.
Keep aside.

Keep a kadai with oil on a stove over slow flame.
Crackle mustard seeds and then add urad dal.
When urad dal turns golden color, add cauliflower pieces and green peas.
Add salt and Saute for few second.
Close with a lid to cook them.
Add prepared masala and crumbled pieces of boiled potato.

Mix well with a ladle and allow to cook on slow fire.
Keep stirring at regular intervals to avoid burning at the bottom.
Switch off when the water content is completely evaporated.

Transfer into a serving bowl and garnish with coriander leaves.
Enjoy with sambar or rasam mixed rice.
It also goes well with chappathy or puri.
