Yet another dish made with the versatile cauliflower. Since gobhi has a bland flavour, it can go well with any gravy and combination of spices.

Here is a wonderful treat for all you spice lovers. To enhance the dish's allure, use fresh cauliflower and keep the florets slightly big in size.

Makes a wholesome meal together with rotis and rice .

It is spicy, no doubt; aroma was good. But still we prefer other curries with tomato and coconut. Somehow we will finish this curry, but don't think we will do this again. Tamarind and vinegar give weird taste.
