How often we find ourselves picking lush cauliflowers at the market, only to quickly discard the greens and stow the cauliflower head alone into the fridge! Well, this recipe will help you discover the goodness of this often unused part of the cauliflower.

The greens are a great source of iron and folic acid, which are must-have nutrients for mums-to-be. The Cauliflower Greens and Besan Muthia is a tasty and healthy steamed snack, which will help you boost your iron and folic acid reserves and build up your haemoglobin stores. You will also thoroughly relish the yummy texture and lingering flavour of these traditionally-tempered muthias.

Oh wow! Use of cauliflower greens to make a snack.... I tried this snack as I am anaemic and have been advised to increase my iron levels. It turned out to be extremely delicious. Will make it more often now.
