Recipe Instructions

* If u are using potatoes, cut them into small slices or microwave them first), washed, trimmed and cut into small florets, dried thoroughly with paper towels.

In a heavy, large(15"diameter) frying pan, heat the oil until a haze forms. Stir in mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger and onions. Cook stirring constantly for 1 min, add salt and turmeric, and continue stirring for 3-4 minutes.

Drop in cauliflower(or other veggie), and turn the florets until all are evenly coated with the onion mixture. Then stir in tomato, chile, ground cumin, sugar, and 1 tbsp of the cilantro. Reduce the heat to low, stirring constantly until cauliflower is tender, but still intact.

To serve, spoon the contents of pan onto a platter, and sprinkle the top with the melted ghee and remaining cilantro.

Note: You can also use squash, or potatoes, or anything else that is starchy in place of cauliflower! I have tried all and they all taste great.
