CHATPAT GOBI(MICROWAVE COOKING)

I was boring to cook the veg filling with mixed vegetables and also with potato,I thought of cooking by using gobi florets and tried this recipe in Indo-Chinese style , it came very perfect and delicious.As this is a base recipe which can be used to fill as a tortilla wrap, samosa or spring roll filling or even served with a hot dog bread filling or as a side dish or even used to make simple gobi fried rice.The quantity before cooking looks bulk,but after microwaving it reduces to half the quantity.If you are mild spice eater,reduce the spice quantity for better taste

INGREDIENTS:
  1. Cauliflower florets/gobi florets-1 big head
  2. Onion very finely chopped-3 tbs
  3. Finely chopped spring onion greens-3 tbs
