Roasted Cauliflower In White Gravy

Roasted Cauliflower In White Gravy - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Cauliflower is one vegetable that can be used in fusion style cooking. Usually, I prepare cauliflower in Indian way. This time I tried to merge with a concept of baking cauliflower with ingredients used in Italian cuisine and our own Indian style white gravy. This rich creamy fusion recipe was a hit in my house. It's an excellent party dish where vegetarian dish is concerned. All in all, I'm positive that you will love this fusion recipe. Do try it!
