Tandoori Cauliflower


Tandoori cauliflower is a delicious and healthy dish that is perfect for any occasion. This recipe combines the bold flavours of traditional Indian tandoori seasoning with the mild taste of cauliflower, resulting in a dish that is packed with flavour and nutrition. The tandoori seasoning is made up of a blend of spices including garam masala and Kashmiri red chilli. This gives Tandoori cauliflower a beautiful orange colour and a spicy kick. The cauliflower is then cooked in a tandoor oven, which is a clay oven used in Indian cuisine to give the dish a smoky flavour. You can serve with raita and garnish with coriander and pomegranate seeds
