Preparation time: 15 minutes
Marination and refrigeration time: 3 hours
Baking time: ~1hr 15 mins
Cauliflower – 1 small
Thick curd/yogurt – 1/2 cup or as required to coat the whole cauliflower
Tandoori masala – 2 tsp (*I used store bought*)
Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp
oil – 1 tsp
Clean the leaf part of the cauliflower. Keep it aside.
Boil enough water in a pot with a tsp of salt so as to dunk the whole cauliflower.
Soak the cauliflower in hot water for about 15-20 minutes. This is to make sure the cauliflower is clean.
Meanwhile, prepare the marinade by adding the tandoori masala and ginger-garlic paste to the thick curd. Mix well.
Then using cooking/pastry brush or using your clean hands, marinade the cauliflower well, making sure to smear some under the cauliflower wherever there is space.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
After 3 hours of good refrigeration, line and grease a baking pan. bake at 350ºF for 1 hr 15 minutes in a preheated oven.
Bake at 350ºF for 1 hr 15 minutes in a preheated oven or till the Gobi is cooked.
