I came across this recipe when looking for something interesting to do with some cauliflower and this is definitely a change from boiled or steamed cauliflower and a great side dish with chicken or fish. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (March 1985)

This was a good dish. I've made another version that calls for ginger/garlic paste and skips the lemon juice. Definitely good comfort food.
