Cauliflower-Methi Sabji

Cauliflower is one vegetable which can be prepared in many ways and it goes well with chappathis, Rice or can be had alone as a starter.
In this post,I am writing a recipe of a dry sabji which can be packed in lunch boxes.
Ingredients
Cauliflower 1(medium size)
Methi leaves/Fenugreek leaves/Vendaya keerai (chopped) 1 cup
Garlic 6 cloves
Red chilli powder
Oil
Dhaniya Jira Powder 1 tsp
Salt
Mustard seeds
Jira/Cumin seeds
Turmeric/Haldi
Hing/Asafoetida

Method
First cut cauliflower into big florets.Clean it well and let it remain in water with salt and turmeric for sometime so that very small insects can be removed.
Strain the water and either blanch the florets for 5 minutes in boiling water with little salt or cook it in Microwave oven in micro mode for 3 to 4 minutes.
Finely chop the methi leaves.
In a Kadai,Add oil,Mustard seeds,Jira,Crushed Garlic,hing,haldi,add the blanched cauliflower florets,salt,chilli powder,toss them well and add methi leaves and dhaniyajira powder.
Mix them well and cover the kadai with a lid and pour little water over the lid ,keep the flame in sim mode and switch off when methi leaves are cooked well.This sabji with minimum liquid is best suited for lunch boxes.
