1 medium/large Cauliflower – chop to 1-1/2″ pieces.
1 lb package of frozen cocktail Shrimp – (any raw shrimp will do).
2-3 Potatoes – chop to 1″ sized pieces.
1 medium Onion – chop to small pieces.
1 large Tomato – chop to small pieces.
1/3 cup of Vegetable Oil.
1/2 cup water (optional – only if you prefer a little gravy)
1/2 tea spoon of red chilli powder (optional – for hot taste)
2 tea spoon of Salt.
1 tea spoon of Sugar.
1 tea spoon of powdered Cumin (Jira).
3/4 tea spoon of Turmeric powder (Halud).
1 tea spoon of powdered black pepper (Gol morich).
1. Take the Cauliflower & Potato pieces in a plastic/glass container
with a cover and put in microwave for 5-6 mins at high heat.
2. Take a large non-stick pan and use medium heat to fry the onion
till it is soft, then add shrimp, and fry till the shrimp changes
color and shape. Add the chopped tomato and stir. Tomato should
provide moisture. If you prefer to see a little gravy, now is the time
to add 1/2 water. Add chili if you want hot taste.
3. Add all the spices, and micro-waved cauliflower + potato and stir
to mix up everything.
4. Put a cover to this pan and cook at a low heat for 5-6 mins or
till the cauliflower & potatoes appear to be soft.
5. Turn off the heat. Done. From start to end, it takes less than
30 mins – the secret is to fry the onion, shrimp & tomato while using
microwave for cowliflower & potato.
