If you love cauliflower then you may try this recipe. Its a bit different but a very popular and signature dish of  Bengal. This is one of my most favourite cauliflower recipe. Cauliflower  with mustard and coconut paste -- its really delicious and I am sure you all would love every bit of it. So just try it out and enjoy!!


  • Cauliflower-1(Cut into medium florets)
  • Potato - 1 (Thinly sliced)
  • Mustard coconut paste - 3-4 tbsp (Mix black mustard seeds, grated coconut 4 tbsp with 1 green chilli to make the paste)
  • Kalonji/Nigella seeds - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • Mustard oil - 5-6 tbsp
  • Sugar - 1 tbsp 
  • Salt to taste
  • Green chillies - 3-4 (slit lengthwise)
  • Coriander leaves (chopped) - 1 tbsp


  1. Take water in a pan mixed with salt and bring it to a boil. Add the cauliflower florets and cook them on high flame for 3-4 mins.  Drain the water and keep them aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and temper with nigella seeds and green chillies. Add the thinly sliced potatoes and fry for 2-3 mins. (optional). Now add the cauliflower florets and saute for a min. on high flame.
