  • Open and cook for a minute or two to get it roasted a little.


If the cauliflower is big sized, then take 3/4th of it for this recipe to serve 4.
It is better to put the cauliflowers in hot water for a minute or two before cooking them. However we clean in running water, there might be hidden worms.
