Cauliflower Thoran

When my mother in law first served this dish to me and asked me to guess what it was? I really didn’t have an idea. I felt know this vegetable, but it’s not cabbage even though it looks like it. I tasted and tasted and finally I told it was cauliflower. Here we get cauliflower plenty. I am a lover of nadan dishes. So decided to make cauliflower in nadan style. Thanks Ammachi (my mother in law) for serving me the dish so that I have an addition to my recipe list.
