Shahi Cauliflower (Gobi) Kurma

Shahi Cauliflower(Gobi) Kurma
A Kurma is a beautiful, spicy and rich way to enjoy fresh vegetables. This Indian lightly cream based or coconut based gravy can be spicy or mild and is sometimes made rich with the addition of poppy seeds and/or cashew nuts. Now that Rich = Shahi
Personally I do not like the addition of cashew nuts to my everyday meals but then there are those special days which require a special concession and so this came up. This can be served with Parathas or Naan.

1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp chilli powder
a pinch of turmeric powder

To grind to a paste: (Grind these to a paste adding little water)
10 blanched almonds
10-15 cashewnuts
