BonAppetit.com, how I love you so. A couple of months ago, I was perusing the Internet for a cauliflower recipe as I always like to include a vegetable in our evening meal. I came across this Indian style cauliflower recipe and all I can say is yummmmmm. If you crave Indian food as I do, you MUST try this recipe. Even if curry is not your thing, this recipe is still worth a try and the aroma of fresh cumin and coriander seeds is simply divine.
It’s super easy to make and I can assure you, there will be no leftovers of this Indian style cauliflower recipe. As a matter of fact, I triple the recipe because the fam loves it that much…That was until I made it on repeat weekly for 2 months. Everyone basically od’d except for me.
