A wholesome dish for cauliflower lovers

Top Review by Tea Girl

We liked it, but it is not my favourite Indian cauliflower dish. It didn't seem to thicken up much, which make the flavour not as strong I would have liked. Maybe I would use less water next time. My DH liked it more than I did and said he would be happy to have it again.
