Cauliflower is like that versatile talented actor, who is every director’s delight. Ketoites are hooked onto Cauliflower rice, wraps, pies, pita breads and so much more. But if you ask me, I like it just the way it is. The way my mom used to make it, and the way I have been having it since my childhood. Aloo Gobhi or cauliflower with potatoes is a staple dish of North India. But since we cannot have potatoes, we need to look for ways to make the humble cauliflower retain its star status. I have for you today Keto Tandoori Cauliflower or Cauliflower that is partly baked in the oven. It is covered with rich masala which seeps right in and makes the final dish lip-smacking. I know of an aunt who used to add honey to the masala, but I haven’t done that. The only thing you need to be careful of is not to overcook the florets or they will become a mash. Try this dish today and I am sure that you will love Cauliflower a little more.
