Photobucket

Both of us are not such a good eaters when it comes to Cauliflower.I tried making cauliflower curry many times ,using different proportions of ingredients,but everytime it ended up tasting the same. Some months ago, I followed someones blog for this recipe. I made a note of the ingredients ,but not the blog. However am very thankful to that blogger for including this flower in our meal.Very tasty curry that makes the gobi-haters want for more. Very good especially with Rotis.
