Garlic Butter Pepper Cauliflower

Hello everybody !! Hope you had a great weekend !

This is the last recipe from the festive veg platter series. I tried to do a slightly different preparation with my favorite vegetable cauliflower. This is specially for those who like a comparatively non spicy dish which is a bit different from the traditional ones. Let me know in the comment section if you like it or not.

Lets get started !!


Preparation Time : 5 minutes

Clean the cauliflower florets well. In a pressure cooker add the florets, some salt and 2 cups of water. Wait for 2 whistles in medium flame. Take out the boiled cauliflowers in t a paper towel wrapped plate. Try to dry the florets as much as possible.

Cooking Time : 10 minutes

Ingredients :

  • Cauliflower – 1, cut slightly bigger florets, boiled
  • Garlic – 6 to 8 cloves, crushed
  • Tomato – 1 small, roughly crushed
  • Dry Bay Leaf – 1
  • Whole spices – 2 small cinnamon stick, 3 cardamoms, 4 whole black pepper, 2 cloves
  • Refined Oil – 2 tablespoon (I used refined vegetable oil)
  • Plain Butter – 2 tablespoon, melted
  • Black Pepper Powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Green Chillies – 2, slitted (only garnishing)
  • Salt – as per taste


Recipe :

  1. Heat refined oil in a wok. When the oil heats up, add whole spices and dry bay leaf.
  2. When the spices start crackling, add the cauliflower florets. Stir until they turn slightly golden.
  3. Add tomatoes, garlic paste and some salt. Mix well and stir until the tomatoes become soft.
  4. Add 1 cup of warm water Mix and cover with a lid. Let it cook for few minutes until the gravy thickens.
  5. When everything is done, turn the flame off. Add the black pepper powder and melted butter. Mix everything well.
  6. Garnish with green chillies.

Serve Garlic Butter Pepper Cauliflower  hot with puri / fried rice.
