Indian Curry With Cauliflower Stalks

Gobhi ke danthal are cauliflower stalks. Some people simply discard this part of the cauliflower, but the stalks are actually perfectly healthy, edible and delicious.

For the lower part of the stalks, whose outer skin is in some cases a bit hard, it is recommended to peel off the hard outer skin. In other cases, the skin does not need to be peeled off. The tender cauliflower leaves can also be used along with the stalks.

This is a traditional Punjabi dish from North India. Do try this dish and share your experience.
