Cauliflower in Yoghurt

Cauliflower can be cooked in a number of ways. The Indian versions are often spicy, but not always. I cooked this recipe because the picture in the cookbook looked very interesting, but I guess, this definitely is not the kind of recipe for anyone with spice-loving taste buds. I found it too bland, as I love spice and salt in my food, but my husband liked it very much.

Psst‚Ķ I added a little red chilli powder for myself. ūüėČ
