Cauliflower is one of my favourite veggie and I can have it in any form. So today I made a simple and an easy side dish with it, to go with any Indian bread or rice preparation. Spicy and delicious, it can also be served as a frankie, wrapped in a roti / paratha along with some sliced onion, lettuce and any sauce / mayo of your choice. Please check below a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
