Cauliflower and Peas with ginger

This is a sure simple vegetarian winner. The key is grating or chopping the cauliflower into a fine mush so it all cooks quick and evenly. Ginger is also the highlight of this dish ( no garlic has been used). Use a good 2 inch piece on ginger sliced and then chopped.

For the spices you need:

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

1/2 tsp onion seeds

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp dry ground coriander

1/2 tsp cayenne ( or omit)

In a wok, use vegetable oil and fry the cumin and onion seeds until they pop. Add onions and chopped green chilies. In a minute add the ginger. Fry for 2 mins and add the cauliflower and fry for a few mins, add the peppers and keep frying. At this point you can add all the spices. After a few mins add the tomatoes and peas. Cook until everything is tender and spices have blended.
