Directions: How to Cook Cauliflower Koottu (Cauliflower In Spicy Coconut Gravy)
Clean and cut cauliflower into flowerettes. Wash well, along with the peas. Then add turmeric and salt. Cook till done. Heat oil and fry coriander seeds and red chilies until pink. Grind this with the coconut and tamarind to a thick paste. Heat oil and add mustard seeds, black gram dal and red chilies. When brown, pour over the vegetables.
