Dinner: another Indian delight

I love Indian food. Tonight I decided to make another dish and looked for recipes on line. I did not find a single one that looked good, so combined a few to make this cauliflower/peas/potatoes concoction.

--> Cook peas, cauliflower and potatoes (I used sweet potato and a yellow potato) separately and set aside.

--> In a bit of canola oil toast cumin seeds. Add minced ginger, sliced garlic and sliced onion. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add ground coriander, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and ground cumin. Cook the mixture for a few minutes.

--> Add in the vegetables, stir, season with salt and cook until everything is heated through.

--> Serve with rice and cilantro. The flavors should be even better tomorrow!

Lera, it's white rice. It just looks brown b/c I sauted it in a bit of oil first, then covered with water, added in some ginger and cilantro and then cooked on low heat for about 15 min (after bringing it to a boil and turning down the heat). "Browning" the rice gives it a richer, nuttier flavor.
