A quintessential Punjabi sookhi subzee, meaning dry vegetable dish. My mother’s favorite, it’s a simple and delightful dish of cauliflower and potatoes cooked with ginger and spices and finished with raw mango powder. A fantastic accompaniment to curries made with Masala Mama sauces. —MasalaMama

  • ½ teaspoons nigella seeds (optional)

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Heat oil in a wide pan over medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds, nigella seeds, and bay leaves and cook for a few seconds or until they pop and the cumin seeds turns a shade darker.
  2. Add the cauliflower and ½ teaspoon salt and toss well. Cook, stirring every couple of minutes until the cauliflower is charred on some edges and about 80% cooked.
  3. Add the cubed potatoes and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook until potatoes are brown on some edges and cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the Masala Mama Magic Curry Powder and ginger and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. If the cauliflower or potato is still a bit under-cooked, lower the heat, cover, and cook until the cauliflower and potato is cooked but not mushy – for this dish I like my cauliflower well done and not crunchy.
  6. Adjust salt to taste, garnish with cilantro, and lime zest and serve hot with lime wedges on the side.
