How to Make Chilli Garlic Cauliflower Roast

  • Cut cauliflower into big pieces ( 6-8 pieces from one large flower).
  • Grind all the ingredients from chilli powder to turmeric powder together with little water to a smooth paste.
  • Mix with salt. Apply the masala to cauliflower pieces and keep aside for 1/2 hour.
  • Place the cauliflower with the masala in a kadai and cook on high heat, without covering, till most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add oil. Cook and stir till the cauliflower and masala are well roasted.
  • Add tomato puree and continue to cook till the masala is thick enough to coat the cauliflower pieces.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with chapattis.
