Phulkophir Paturi / Dum (Cauliflower Dum - Bengali Fusion Style)


          Paturi is a traditional Bengali recipe where generally the fish is coated in mustard paste and then steamed. It is cooked, wrapped in a banana leaf. But today I would like to share my version of a paturi style recipe with my favourite veggie - Cauliflower.

          It is a very simple, easy and equally delicious dish. As banana leaf was not available, I cooked the cauliflower, mixed with all the mentioned ingredients in a dum style. It is absolutely a fuss-free recipe and equally nutritious with very little oil. This side dish can be had with plain steamed rice, pulao or chapattis. So check for an easy step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 1 medium size cauliflower, cut into florets
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. nigella seeds (kalonji)
  • 2 tbsp. fresh grated coconut
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp. mustard oil 
  • handful of coriander leaves & stems, chopped (leave some to garnish)







          In a pan, mix together all the above mentioned ingredients. Cover and cook on a medium flame till it is done.

          Sprinkle some water at intervals. When the veggies are soft, switch off the flame and garnish with the remaining coriander leaves. Serve as a side dish with either rice or chapattis.
