Cauliflower Cooked In Yogurt

I love cauliflower but  rarely cook with it, maybe because I have only one or two  ideas to cook it. A few days ago I saw these really lovely cauliflowers being sold and bought one to cook for lunch. I had this recipe in Roshi Razzag's   Indian Low Fat cooking cookbook.
I made mine a little bit fatty with the saute' of onions in a little oil.  Goes well with some grilled fish and rice. My hubby cant stand completely vegetarian food so there has to be some form of meat or fish somewhere.

Recipe : Cauliflower cooked in yogurt  adapted from Roshi Razzaq's Indian Low fat Cooking 

1 small onion, sliced
1 small cauliflower, cut into florets
2 medium plum tomatoes , chopped
1 tsp grated ginger
1 fat clove garlic grated
2 green chillies roughly chopped
1/2 cup plain yogurt ( unsweetened)
1/4 cup water
a nice little bunch of coriander leaves and stems, stems and leaves seperated and chopped finely.
1/2 tsp tumeric
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp garam masala

Mix yogurt, tumeric , garam masala  and a pinch of salt and mix well. Set aside.

Heat oil in a  pot big enough to fit everything , and fry cumin seeds till they start to crackle ,  add onion , and stir fry till they go soft. Add tomatoes ,  the chopped coriander stems, garlic , ginger and stir fry for a minute.  Switch off heat.

Add the cauliflower florets, chillies and the yogurt mixture and 1/4 cup water. Mix well with wooden spoon, return to the stove top over a medium heat and cook covered bout 10- 15 minute till the cauliflower is cooked through but not completely soft and mushy ( then its really bleah!!!) 

Check  and stir occasionally  , adding a little water if  necessary.  

Taste add more salt if needed and finally stir in coriander leaves, Switch off and serve with plain rice and a grilled fish or a chicken dish.
