If you have been following me then you probably know that I am a cauliflower fan. That is probably quite evident since I blog cauliflower recipes so often. Elaine, are you with me? 😉

As much as I love cauliflower, I can’t eat the same preparation every time. Regular is boring! Do you agree? If you do then, you are sure going to love this recipe.


Good recipes do not have to be complicated and elaborate, atleast not in my dictionary! Simple and elegant gobhi malai methi served with some cut salad and rustic chapatis, is a wholesome meal.


This is how I made it!
