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.

3.Then add cream+milk and mix well. Allow it to boil for few mins in low flame.Make sure you simmer after milk is added and keep stirring continuously to avoid curdling.
- For a more richer creamier version add fully cream and skip milk.

- Adding kasoori methi gives a nice flavour so dont skip it.
