Cauliflower in Tomato Soup Gravy




Most of us, forget small packets of masala powder hiding between big containers. And then after sometime we do not even remember the existence of that masala powder. Same thing happened with me.

Few days back, when I was cleaning 1 of my Kitchen Cabinet (contains most stuffs which I do not use regularly), I found a packet of Hot Tomato Soup Powder. I happened to got it around 6 months ago. I was in no mood of making the soup, but I do not wanted to throw it away. So, I kept it back in drawer.

Today, when I was talking to my dearest friend "Anupama", she asked me the same question " how to use tomato Soup powder, if U do not want to make a soup. After giving some thought, I came to conclusion that the Chinese dishes like Cauliflower Manchurian, Vegetable  Manchurian ( these recipe will be coming soon) will come out good. But, again I was running out of cornflour, so I decided of making simple Cauliflower dish, which turned out to be so yummy, that I couldn't stop finishing it all by myself.

Here, is the recipe for this amazing dish -

 Ingredients-


  1. Cauliflower skillets - 2 Bowls ( cleaned, washed and drained)
  2. Onion - 1/2 thinly sliced (big)
  3. Garlic - 2 cloves (minced)

  5. Turmeric Powder - 1tsp
  6. Black Pepper Powder- 1tsp
