Recently when I was looking for a change from my version, I found this Dhaba style Cauliflower curry in Cooking Shooking YouTube channel. Chef had used both cauliflower and potato in this recipe but I used cauliflower alone. Also I tweaked the recipe slightly to make it a low calorie version. Still it came out great. Tasted awesome. Myself and Raksha loved it with Dal rice and rasam rice.
