Considering the gratitude with which my Kashmiri Mutton recipe was received I thought I'd share another superfast recipe for people who are so hungry they can't wait to eat.Bet you can't cook anything faster than this.
Essential : a 3 kg pressure cooker or pressure pan.
3/4 kg cauliflower
1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seed/ rai
3 cloves of garlic/ lasun, finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric/ haldi
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp jaggery / gur bits or brown sugar
1 tbsp grated coconut optional
Soak cauliflower florets in salted water for 5 minutes. Remove and put the florets into a pressure cooker. Do not add water, just the drops which cling to the cauliflower will do. Put on the weight and cook on high heat for one whistle.Turn off and put the cooker under the tap to reduce heat fast. Open cooker.
Heat the teaspoon of oil in a kadhai . Add the mustard seeds and saute till they pop. Add the finely minced garlic. When the pieces brown lightly add the cooked cauliflower, the turmeric, salt and jaggery. Stir a couple of trimes, cover ,lower heat and cook for 3 minutes more. Garnish with grated coconut and serve.
