This is Ammiji’s attempt tomake the best out of what we usually waste – and this is literally the best! Cauliflower or Gobhi has multiple health benefits but a lot of their nutrition resides in their stalks. We usually discard those stalks – but here, we take those very stalks and make them shine in this tangy and spicy pickle!
Cauliflowers are high in fibre and antioxidants and are known for their disease-fighting properties. They’re also low in calories and carbohydrates, making them excellent for weight loss. But the nutritional benefits of the cauliflower does not only reside in the flower; the stalks are equally nutritious. The delicate tasting flesh of the stalks is a delicacy all by itself.
And that is why Ammiji never wasted the gobhi danthal! They were made into a sabzi or stored in the fridge till she had collected enough for this pickle. Flavoured with chilli and garlic, this pickle is a delight to pair with anything.
