Gobi Masala - Without Onion

There are times when the unthinkable happens. Like missing onions at home. Yes, it happens and it happened with me today. I had no onions, no potatoes and as if God planned it, I just had cauliflower and tomato as my main ingredients. Then I thought it would be a great experiment which my friends, has been very successful. Presenting Gobi masala without onions. 

4 cup Cauliflower florets - cut and soaked in turmeric water
4 Tbs Tomato puree - or thickly blended
3 green chillies
1 inch ginger
4 cloves garlic
Turmeric Powder
Chilli Powder
Coriander Powder
Coriander Leaves for garnishing

Put oil in a pan and let is heat. Put the cauliflower florets and fry them till lightly brown. Remove and keep it aside.
Make a paste of ginger, garlic and green chillies.
Heat oil in the same pan and put the ginger-garlic-green chillies paste in it. Stir while it gets sauted.
Then add the tomato puree or paste and mix it properly.
Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt. Mix properly.
Wait till the paste cooks and oil separates from the mixture. Then add the cauliflower florets. Mix it properly and add a cup of water. 
Keep a lid and let it soften. 
When the cauliflowers are softened according to your preference, add the coriander leaves and mix. Keep it on heat for couple of more minutes.
Turn off the heat and serve hot with rice.
