Baked cauliflower

Cauliflower is something which i like a lot.... especially when fried or with masala rather than the bland tasting ones. I make this version often when i have some time in hand and a want to eat something really satisfying. We love this at home and find it easy too when i dont have to sweat near the stove for a longer time

This recipe brings out the flavors of the spices mixed with the cauliflower giving it the richness of a king's serving. The whole room fills with a beautiful aroma when it starts baking
