While the potatoes are cooking, heat the oil in a wide skillet till it is very hot. Add the mustard seeds and wait till they start popping. Add bayleaves, cardamom and cloves.

Step 4

Mix around for a while and then add onions. Wait till onion start to turn before adding the rest of the spices (except for turmeric).

Step 5

Put the cauliflower in the skillet and fry in the oil and spices for 2 minutes. While the cauliflower is frying, cut up the potatoes into bite sized pieces and add to the skillet. Add turmeric and stir.

Step 6

Continue stirring the vegetables under medium heat for another couple of minutes. Add half a cup of water and reduce heat to low. Cover skillet and let cook for 5 minutes.

Step 7
