Cauliflower Roast


Cauliflower roast is a quick and easy appetizer. Its is spicy and crispy in the outside and tender and soft in the inside. This is baked in the oven and can be called a somewhat Tandoori cauliflower. It is the same recipe as the Tandoori chicken I posted earlier. I have used the same technique and the same masala but avoided yogurt and mustard powder and instead added lemon juice.

Ingredients


Kashmiri Chilly powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1/2 tsp
Gram flour- 3 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 3/4 tsp
Kasoori methi powder- 1/3tsp
Lemon Juice- 1/2 lemon
Oil- 2 tsp
Salt to taste

Cut cauliflower into florets.
Heat 1 tsp of oil and add gram flour and roast it in a slow flame for about a minute till you get a nice flavor without burning. The best way is to bring the pan to heat and then off heat and then again to heat and whisking continuously.Allow this to cool a bit. 
Mix all ingredients(except oil) along with the gram flour paste and coat the cauliflower with it.If you wish you can add yogurt, or just one tsp of lemon juice or simply chat masala.Finally add the oil on top. Rub  masala into the florets. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray cooking oil. Layer evenly on cookie sheet and bake in 200 degree F for 10 minutes.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy..
