Gobi masala is essentially cauliflower covered in masala. It’s an amazing and delicious dish that can act as an entree or side. And it’s perfect for vegetarians and vegans looking to change up their regular eating routine. The cauliflower is a great vegetable for making the base of a dish because it has a thick and chewy taste that’s enjoyable to feel in your mouth. Cauliflower’s only weakness is that it has a somewhat neutral taste, but the masala makes up for that.
Gobi or cauliflower is an underrated powerhouse vegetable. It has a wealth of vitamins and minerals that in turn create a series of great health benefits in the body. Cauliflower is a rich source of vitamins C, E, and K, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, zinc, and even iron. It also contains phytochemical compounds in doles and glucosinates. They invigorate cancer-blocking enzymes which protect cells from oxidative stress caused by excess free radicals in the body.
