Tandoori Gobhi ... (Tandoor roasted Cauliflower)

Best Blogger Tips
Having a vegetarian in the house ensures that the veggies are not neglected ...ever. Especially, if the vegetarian is my wife...who doesn't like Paneer and goes drooling over potatoes and cauliflower. This love for Cauliflower prompted me to make some Tandoori Gobi one fine evening. She doesn't like it too browned and loves it a little crunchy, hence I took it out a little early. You could keep it for some more time to get that color.

Tandoori Gobi


Cauliflower - 1 Cut into big florets

For the Marinade:
Hung Curd - 1 Cup
Gram Flour (Besan) - 3 Tblsp
