Gobhi Qeema

Pin It Now!

This great combination of cauliflower and minced meat is another delicious dish cooked during the winter season in Pakistan. If you wish to give a variation you can also try adding in some sliced carrots, peas and potatoes, it will still turn out great...

couliflower with minced meat


250 g mince meat/qeema(you can use lamb,beef or chicken) 
500 gm cauliflower/gobhi (cut in to small pieces)
2 medium onions thinly sliced
1 tsp red chili powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
¼ to 1/2 cup oil/ghee 
2-3 medium tomatoes finely chopped
1-2 whole green chilies
6-7 black peppercorns
3  cloves
1 black cardamom
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste 
2-3 tbsp chopped coriander


Heat the oil/ghee in a pan), add onions fry till light brown, add cumin seeds and ginger & garlic paste, stir for 2 minutes then add tomatoes, salt, red chili powder, black pepper corn, black cardamom , cloves and fry it well until the tomatoes are almost dissolved (sprinkle some water if you need to in between). Add in the qeema/minced meat, fry it for further 5-8 mins, then 1 cup of water and simmer over medium-low heat until qeema is done (takes about 15 minutes), once the qeema is done add in the cauliflower pieces and fry for 5 minutes, add 2 green chilies, cover and cook on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes or until the cauliflower is done (keep in mind that we don’t want the cauliflower to get too soft). Before turning of the flame sprinkle garam masala powder, coriander powder and fresh coriander leaves give it a quick stir with a light hand, cover and let it cook for 5  more minutes, that’s it, gobhi qeema is done. Serve it hot with rotis/chapatis :)
