Recipe Notes

If you over cook the cauliflower florets, they tends to become soggy which spoils the taste. 

You need to sauté or half cook the cauliflower florets and potatoes before they are steamed. Thereafter, add red chilli powder, garam masala and ginger to impart sharp flavours. 

Add tomatoes at the end. This will make sure the veggies are nicely cooked through.

Add lot of ginger in any cauliflower dish. It helps in better digestion of cauliflower.
