Ep 4 - F&F Review: Gobi Matar ki Sabzi

Our fourth episode of the Film and Food Podcast saw host Chris and his lovely wife Beth give a Film and Food Review of the 2014 film The Hundred-Foot Journey! This was a special listener requested episode and we had a blast watching and reviewing this film!

Make sure to listen to that episode by clicking on the 'Podcast' tab!

This week's film-inspired recipe was created and home-tested by Beth, and I was lucky enough to try this delicious dish: Gobi Matar ki Sabzi

(Cauliflower and green peas cooked with garlic, tomato and garam masala).

This dish was gratefully adapted from Maunika Gowardhan http://maunikagowardhan.co.uk/cook-in-a-curry/gobi-matar-ki-sabzi/

Recipe Committment: Easy-Medium

This is a vibrant power dish that will spice up your weeknights and is great served with pappadum, roti or just delicious basmati rice!


  • 1 small cauliflower

  • 1 white onion

  • 5 cloves of garlic

  • 6cm of ginger

  • 1 tsp tumeric

  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder

  • 1 cup passata

  • 2 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

  • 1 tsp garam masala

  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander


1.Wash the small cauliflower and cut into medium sized florets. Place on a lined baking tray, sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of turmeric, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast at 200 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned and crispy at the edges. 

2. Grate the white onion, and saute in a heavy bottomed pot for 10 minutes. Finely crush the garlic, and grate the ginger, adding to the onions for a minute to cook, before adding the 1/2 tsp numeric, 1/2 tsp chilli powder, cup of pasta, and 2 tbsp tomato paste.

3. Cook the tomato mixture for another ten minutes, then add the frozen peas to heat through. Once the peas have had a few minutes, gently stir though the cauliflower. Allow to take on the flavours for two minutes, before taking off the heat and adding the garam masala and fresh coriander.  

4. Serve with basmati rice and yoghurt! Enjoy!
