Looking for a different Gobhi recipe which tastes good as well? This Achari Gobhi is a delicious change from the regular Gobhi ki Sabzi recipe. You need just the most basic ingredients that are used to make pickles or pickled spices to make this dish. Here is how to make it.
If you have Achari Masala handy, then trust me making this Achari Gobhi Sabzi is a child’s play!
Achari Masala can be prepared in minutes at home and it can be stored for quite some time.
I like to use this masala in my dal and curries and it gives a nice and different taste to the same everyday food.

Cauliflower is a very nutritious vegetable as we all know.
For instance, you decrease the risk of suffering from cancer when you eat cauliflower.
Moreover, cauliflower helps with weight loss, combats heart-related diseases. It also prevents inflammation and is good for eye health.
But, Achari Gobhi literally marks a fresh change of menu on the table.
This sabzi is really basic. All you need to do is:
– Heat mustard oil or any other oil of your choice, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds if you like.
– Then, saute cauliflower florets with lemon juice, chili powder, coriander leaves, green chilies, turmeric powder, tomato puree in the heated oil.
– Cover and cook it on a medium flame until it’s nicely cooked and the masala binds with cauliflower.
As I usually like the subtle tang of Amchoor powder in my sabzis, I have added a pinch to this recipe.
You may also use Chaat Masala if you do not have Amchoor powder at home.
Sometimes I also add a tbsp of oil from my Mango Pickle to this curry and it tastes even more delicious.
You can also add peas and potatoes to this sabji.
Believe it or not, this cauliflower sabzi turns to be wholesome, aromatic and very palatable.
And the good news is that it goes really well with roti or parathas.
Also, because of all the spices used, the flavor of cauliflower becomes subtle. Ain’t that magical, ladies?
So, if you are scratching your brain thinking: “Which sabzi should I make today?”, my answer is Achari Gobhi.
Now, quickly scroll down and give my simple recipe a read to make this salubrious Indian side, folks!
