Southern style Spicy Cauliflower Curry / gravy !!

Cauliflower is low in fat, low in carbohydrates but high in dietary fiber, folate, water and vitamin c, having high nutritional value and best for weight loss. I thought of sharing a simple south Indian curry with Cauliflower as a main ingredient. We can also use the base of this curry for other vegetables like potato, mushroom, broccoli, etc., We can also try with dairy (Panneer) and meat products (chicken, mutton, etc.).
