    A long over due review. I have been making this dish since it first ran in the magazine & shared it with everyone; even my Mom has shared the recipe with her friends.
    I do alter the recipe; spices and oil are doubled to tripled. Also, make sure the cauliflower is dry other wise it steams too much. Enjoy!

    As an Indian, I wanted to point out that before you add the cauliflower florets, you need to wait till the mustard seeds splutter in the oil first. If it doesnt splutter, then it won't digest well. In Indian cooking, we heat oil and add mustard seeds first, wait for it to splutter and then add the rest of the ingredients. Overall this is a good and simple recipe.

    This is the most delicious way to eat cauliflower. Even my siblings who dont love cauliflower and HATE cumin seeds gobbled it up!

    This was very easy to make and tasted great! I don't really like cauliflower but my boss does so I made this for him. You can still taste the cauliflower but the curry makes it so much for enjoyable as well as healthy. I highly recommend the recipe!
