  3. Excellent picture Indira! And a make-drool-at-looking pose! Your hand is resembling a kind mother’s hands towards a hungry child. If you were near I would run towards you!

  10. Hi Indira, this dish looks lovely! And I am even happy enough to have access to almost all the ingredients - will have to check our local Indian grocery for Kasuri Methi.

    Thank you for the recipe, I will certainly try it in the near future!

  12. Hi! I have been reading your blog for a while and wondered if you have any recipes that use fresh fenugreek/methi that you would share. I have never ever seen it fresh in our stores and yesterday, there it was staring back at me, so I had to buy it, now to use it! Thanks for any help!

  18. Thank you all for your sweet notes.
    I loved this cauliflower preparation with kasuri methi and golden raisins. I hope you try and like it too.

    Hello Ginger:
    You can find fresh fenugreek recipes - here.
    Fresh fenugreek(methi) is one of my favorite green leafy vegetables. I often prepare fenugreek-potato, methi mattar malai and fenugreek-toordal recipes with fresh fenugreek leaves.
    If you try, let me know how you like them.

    Shruthi: Thanks.
    I can talk and discuss about food non-stop, but when it comes to food photography, I feel somewhat inadequate. I am still in experimentation and learning stage.

  22. […] You know how it is sometimes. You prepare a new recipe, you like it so much, you have to make it again the next day. That’s what happened to me with cauliflower. I loved the gobi I prepared last weekend very much, I made it again today. This time, I also added few potatoes to the pot. The friendship between brain-like cauliflower and belly-like, comforting potatoes is legendary. The fragrant kasuri methi and the sweet golden raisins addition made this lovely friendship even more endearing to me. I can surely say that this is the best cauliflower curry I have ever made next to my amma’s recipe. Good use of cauliflower that’s in season.(Recipe follows) Busy days. See you again on Sunday. […]
