Ingredients to make Spicy Gobi/Cauliflower Roast

  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 1-2 tbsp oil
  • Fresh lime Juice to taste
  • salt to taste
  • spices Used:
  • 1 tbsp Dhania/coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
  • 1 - 2 tsp red chilli Powder (Adjust as per taste)

How to make Spicy Gobi/Cauliflower Roast

  1. Pre-heat the oven at 180 deg C and place the rack in the centre of the oven.
  2. Cut cauliflowers into medium sized florets and transfer them to a large vessel of boiling water, with turmeric powder and about a teaspoon of salt, for about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Drain all the water and transfer the cauliflower florets to large mixing bowl.
  4. Now add all the spices listed along with oil and salt to taste and mix them well so that every individual floret is coated with spices.
  5. If you have time, let it marinate for 10-15 minutes so that cauliflower florets absorbs all the flavours of spices. You can completely skip this step if you are short of time and proceed to next step.
  6. Line the baking sheet/tray with aluminium foil and arrange the cauliflower florets in single layer. Place the baking sheet/tray in mid rack and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  7. After 10 minutes, take out the tray and gently turn over the florets and bake them again for 7-10 minutes. The florets should be well cooked and tender when pricked with a sharp knife or fork.
  8. Transfer to serving bowl and drizzle freshly squeezed lime juice to taste. Garnish with coriander leaves, if desired, and serve this Spicy Gobi/Cauliflower Roast hot with any flavoured or plain rice or with any Indian flat breads and Dal.

My Tip:

If you have time, let the florets marinate in spices for 15-30 minutes for real depth of flavour. You can serve this Spicy Gobi/Cauliflower Roast with any plain of flavoured rice or with any Indian flat bread. I have used the Spicy Gobi/Cauliflower Roast in wraps with a spoonful of sour cream and salad leaves and it tastes absolutely delicious. You can also use it as a stuffing with Pita bread, some fresh vegetables like sliced onion, tomato, cucumber and few lettuce leaves. Top it with any of your favourite relish or dipping sauce. Put them in a zip lock bag and you can freeze them up to 2 weeks. When needed, just take it out of the freezer and pop it in an oven (make sure that they are spread in single layer) and cook for 10 minutes at 180 deg C.
