  5. Heat oil in a kadai or pan, add cumin seeds, when it sizzles, add thinly sliced onions and saute until onions turn golden brown. Add a little salt to quicken the process.
  6. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a few more minutes. Then add all the vegetables including cauliflower.
  7. Add little water and cook covered on medium flame. If you are using pressure cooker, do not put the weight as the vegetable will get overcooked. Keep stirring now and then for even cooking and to prevent it from getting burnt.
  8. After the vegetables are cooked a little, add the spice powder, turmeric powder and salt needed. Cook covered.
