Gobi Masala Recipe (Gobi Masala Gravy) - Restaurant Style

Gobi Masala
Gobi / Cauliflower Masala is one of my favs...I wanted to try it this way after watching a TV show and finally gave a try and hubby loved it so much. Adding cream and kasoori methi gives it a restaurant kind of flavour, am sure you will agree with me after tasting this. Mittu loves gobi 65 and is slowly starting to taste gravy kinds too so this recipe is a winner at home.

My Notes:

  • For a more richer creamier version add fully cream and skip milk.
  • If you parboil cauliflower then while adding add 1/4 cup water and allow it to cook well.
  • Adding kasoori methi gives a nice flavour so dont skip it.
  • You can make it even more dry gravy kind too.

  22. Hi Sharmi,

    First of all, your posts are just wonderful.. Just a quick question.. We don't get 'Fresh Cream' in the US. So could you please tell me if we can use Whipped cream/ heavy cream/ natural light cream/table cream for the gravies. I'm a newbie and I have no clue :(
    Thank you!
