Preparing curries with tender vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli can be as easy as it can get.
Cauliflower is by far the best source of Vitamin K which is vital for bone health.More on nutrition of Cauliflower and broccoli

What you'll need is
1/2 lb Broccoli or Cauliflower florets
1 small onion chopped
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Chilly powder( or more as per your spice tolerance level)

To make the simplest curry ever

Heat Olive Oil in a Pan on Medium high. Add onion, mustard seeds,curry leaves,cumin seeds and saute for a minute before adding the spicy duo minced ginger and garlic. Add the golden spice turmeric ,coriander powder and the chilly powder along with the florets. cover and cook for about ten minutes. Cook for few more minutes if you don't like it crunchy. but if you are like me you'll just cook for about 8-10minutes . Serve with rice and flat bread(parathas). And taste one of the simplest curries in the Indian cuisine.
