This is one of my favorite Pakistani dishes! Very good. Interesting twist on the old side of potatoes.


  • 1 med. cauliflower
  • 4 c. white or gold potatoes
  • 1 tsp. mustard seed
  • 1 tbs. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 c. chicken stock
  • 1/2 c. Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil
  • 1 lrg. tomato


Heat oil and mustard seeds in heavy pot. When the oil gets hot and the seeds start to make a "popping" sound add all the other spices, and vegtables. (I like to boil the potatoes off to the side by themselves to speed up the cooking process of the dish while I clean up the cauliflower.). Stir to mix evenly. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is just done, but not mushy.

Finally I add in salt to taste, the yogurt, and tomato and mix. Let simmer on low for another 5 minutes or so.
