DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together the besan, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garam masala, cumin, coriander and red pepper flakes, set aside.
  • Heat the oil over a low flame and saute the garlic until soft but not brown.
  • Add the cauliflower and broccoli and increase the heat a bit. Saute for 3-4 minutes, or until they begin to brown.
  • Reduce the heat back to low and sprinkle on the reserved spice blend. Cover the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes. Don't peak! This step will release the moisture from the vegetables, you don't want to lose it.
  • Sprinkle about a tablespoon of water on the vegetables and toss around a little until they look coated with the besan/spice mix. Resist the temptation to add too much water.
  • Cover the pan as quickly as possible and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender but firm, 2-3 minutes. This is the point at which I add in the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt or not, depending on who is home for dinner.
