Phool gobi matar aloo ki sabzi recipe - how to make cauliflower green peas potato bhaji

Matar, aloo, gobi sabzi recipe - If  I am not preplan for next day morning breakfast, I don't  think too much. I just make some quick sabzi and chapatis. That saves my energy and time. Cauliflower is one such vegetable that cooks very fast and you don't need  to wait hours together. Fresh and clean cauliflower is our favorite vegetable too.  Cauliflower is a vegetable that is available throughout the year and you can prepare so many dishes with it.  This sabzi is definitely a healthier version and it was tasty too. It goes really well with chaptis, rotis, and rice with curry. I have added potatoes and green peas to this sabzi which has turned out to be a  delicious combination.
