Roasted Spicy Aroma Cauliflower

Roasted Spicy Aroma Cauliflower 

Cauliflower is not my first priority to buy among all my favourite vegetables as you know. You guy can see I have not many cauliflower posts in the past.

I still like it but not the most though, hehe. The taste of cauliflower is a bit bland for me. It needs to add more flavour or spice to turn into a delicious dish, right?

Among of the posts, I like the Creamy cauliflower chowder, Korean buffalo ‘chicken’ wing with sauce. These are my favourite. :p

In the blogging world, I saw a lot of recipe talking about how nice the cauliflower are. Now I am going to proof those words. The recipe for today inspired by Charanya, her blog was full of surprise for me.

All the spices in the recipe shouldn’t be any problem for you if you like the Indian dish. All those are the ordinary spices. The spicy rank in this recipe is about medium, feel free to adjust the quantity for your choices.

Warning: the fragrance of the spices will full-filled your whole kitchen and your soul.

Ok, back to the work.
