There is something magical about cauliflower. It seems so common, but lends itself to a variety of preparations from everyday fare to exotic dishes.
Here, for example, it combines with peppy capsicum, everyday spices and spice powders to make a tongue-tickling Gobi Simla Mirch that you can serve with roti or enjoy just by itself!
You will surely enjoy the tang lent by tomatoes and the super aromatic touch of kasuri methi in this mouth-watering dish.
Besides subzi, cauliflower can be used to make Cauliflower Parathas , Cauliflower and Oats Tikki and Cauliflower and Broccoli Pie .
