Gobi Musallam

gobi-musallam-minGobi Musallam is a delectable North Indian Gravy prepared with the blanched Cauliflower, Khoya, Pumpkin seeds, Tomatoes, Onion and Spices. In this delicious gravy, the Cauliflower as a whole is first blanched and then cooked in creamy gravy. It tastes the best with Plain rice, Pulao, Roti, Phulka and Chapati.

Here, I have captured the picture of the Gobi Musallam just before serving it to my family. So, I have separated the florets from it.
