NaanStop Gobi Recipe:


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets or 1 lb frozen cauliflower
  • 1 c diced onion
  • 1tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ c tomato sauce
  • 1T coriander, ground
  • 1T cumin, ground
  • 1T turmeric, ground
  • 1t salt
  • Pinch red chili or cayenne pepper
  • Pinch garam masala
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro


  1. Place a large skillet or wok on med heat. Add 1 tbs olive oil or other neutral
    oil. Add diced onion and grated fresh ginger and sauté until translucent
    (about 5 mins). Reduce heat if the onions start to brown.
  2. Add tomato sauce, spices (coriander, cumin, turmeric, chili, garam masala),
    and salt and mix into a paste, cooking briefly.
  3. Add cauliflower to the skillet and mix well so the spice mixture gets into all
    the cauliflower. If using fresh cauliflower, add ¼c of water. If using frozen,
    omit the water – frozen cauliflower will give off moisture in cooking.
  4. Cover the skillet with a lid. Remove the lid and stir every few minutes
    ensuring the cauliflower doesn’t burn to the bottom. Reduce heat and add a
    little bit of water if needed.
  5. Continue cooking 5-10 minutes until the cauliflower reaches tender-crisp. It
    should still have a little bit of crunch, but not taste raw
  6. Remove from heat, add chopped cilantro, and stir to combine. Save a little
    chopped cilantro to sprinkle on top as a garnish.
  7. Serve over freshly steamed Basmati rice and enjoy
