Baked Gobhi (Cauliflower) Directions

  1. Cut cauliflower into large florets. Immerse it into salted boiling water for 5-7 mins.

  3. Apply all over to the florets with an oil brush. Apply as much as possible; also in the gaps.
  4. Add melted butter over the cauliflower. Place cauliflower in a shallow Pyrex (casserole) dish and place it in an oven preheated at 300 for about 20 to 25 mins or till the florets turn tender.
  5. For garnishing, heat butter and add spring onions to it. Stir fry for 2 mins.
  6. Pour this along with green dhaniya over the baked gobi and toss lightly with a fork.
  7. Sprinkle some chaat masala over the gobis.
  8. Serve hot. Best served with parathas or naan.
