Cauliflower is a good option to make Kheema for vegetarians. It tastes subtle and goes well with any flat bread.

Coriander Powder 2 tsp

Garam masala Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt To taste
Oil 2-3 tbsp
Caraway Seeds/Black Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Whole Garam Masala** 1-2 nos

1) Heat oil in a pan and add the caraway seeds and whole garam masala. Add the green chilies, ginger garlic paste and onions and sauté until the onions are caramelized. Sprinkle salt.
2) Add the tomatoes and cook until it turns soft and then add the turmeric powder, chili powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder and sauté for a minute.
3) Add the grated Cauliflower, Paneer and green peas and sauté it well. Let it cook until the cauliflower is well cooked and the raw smell disappears.

You can leave out Paneer and just do the Gobi Matar Kheema.
