Gobi 65 recipe|Cauliflower 65 recipe restaurant style


If you have a child who hates Cauliflower ,don't scream at them or give them free advice ,make them Gobi 65 .Problem solved !

Well,that's how I used to tell my mother....

When I was little, I was always curious to know, why the hell is a vegetable that appears to be cloned into a cluster called CauliFLOWER or PHOOLgobi (in Hindi) ...Is it a flower or is it a vegetable ? What the heck it is ? Unwanted questions like this always haunted my growing mind back then....


However,whenever,my neighbor Punjabi aunty would bring some Gobi 65 to my home ,I would be thinking with a smile at her,when is this aunty gonna leave ..I want that orange-y,crunchy,crispy looking thing she brought for us, ASAP...The moment she would step outside the door,I would jump at it as if she would return soon to take them back ....And Oh my..Did I love it ?..I was so crazy about it and I was in a denial for long, that inside that orange-y thing-y is actually those cauliflower florets that intrigued me to think more, than just eat.


So,my mother had her recurring ahaa moment ...She got her sure shot idea how to make her fussy child (ME) eat those cauliflowers ...She started making Gobi 65 but without any color ....I kind of surrendered ! (Sm-art moms!)

So,it is by far my favorite cauliflower recipe that I simply love...I make it often at home..Usually like my mom even I don't use any color but if I've any guest invited ,to make it look quite presentable  just like I did in my video would add a pinch of color ...Poor cauliflowers!...After all they also deserve some color other than white and green....


So,here is my crunchy crispy Gobi 65 recipe restaurant style.....
