Cauliflower Bhaji

Everyone loves their Gobi (Cauliflower); mostly in the form of a Manchurian. I like it like that too. What I also like is this. This particular Cauliflower Bhaji recipe has been an absolute family favorite rightly from childhood. My maternal aunt came up with this recipe and I can’t thank her enough. It is nutritious and delicious at the same time. Also, has all the goodness from eggs. The days where we don’t want to have any meat on our plates, this is what we make. We either eat it as a side with some rice and dal or just eat it with rotis. 


Even though my darling husband isn’t a big fan of cauliflowers, he eats this particular dish without any cribbing. This is a great toddler-friendly recipe too.

Do u crib about vegetables too? Try this recipe and you’ll hopefully stop cribbing.
