Tandoori Gobhi or Roasted Cauliflower is a dish which is versatile. You can use this as a main course or side dish. Serve this with Roti or Rice, or accompany this with your quinoa or couscous salad. This can wow your guests at any dinner party because of the look and flavour which is absolutely gorgeous.

While growing up I saw my mom and aunts cook this very often, but keeping our busy schedule in mind I have simplified the recipe. In this recipe, there are only three steps which are quite simple.
