Cauliflower Stir-fry

This is a typical cauliflower stir-fry recipe and is a very common one too.

Here is the ingredient list:
1 medium cauliflower head,chopped
1 small onion,finely chopped
Green Chillies/jalapenos - to taste
1 spoon,kitchen king masala
ginger-garlic paste- 1 spoon(I used store bought)
cooking oil,for the saute
Cilantro leaves for garnishing

Ingredients for tempering:
Mustard seeds - 1/2 spoon
Curry leaves - few
asafoetida- a pinch(optional)

Soak the chopped cauliflower florets for 10-15 minutes in water to which turmeric powder has been added. This ensures faster cooking of the florets and also removes any germs that might be present.

Heat cooking oil(I used 2 tbsp) in a pan and add the temepring ingredients one after the other. Next add chillies/jalapenos followed by onions. Saute for a couple of minutes till onion is partially cooked. In the meanwhile,drain the water from the cauliflower peices. Add the pieces to the pan.Let it cook for about 10 minutes. Now add salt,kitchen king masala and mix well. the florets tend to give out water while cooking, hence wait till all the water has been absorbed.Switch off the stove. Serve as a side to rice/dal or rotis.
