Recipe by Hetal
"A spicy cauliflower served whole on a platter - looks like a red and yellow flower. Garam Masala can be found in Indian grocery stores and some traditional grocery stores. I like to serve peas and carrots lightly cooked in butter on the side of this dish."

Awesome! The garam masala is a MUST! I cut the oil in half, and it was just fine. I had to microwave the baked cauliflower for 2 minutes - it wasn't quite tender. One tip: don't let the tomato curry sit and cool before serving because it thickens up too much. The next time I made this, I used only 1 Tbl. oil and diced canned tomatoes. After the sauce was finished cooking, I pureed it in my food processor. For the cauliflower, I steamed it in my vegetable steamer until tender, then did a 'rough chop' to get smaller florets (which is how I see this dish served in Indian restaurants). I then mixed the cauliflower into the pureed sauce. I will make those changes again! Thanks for the recipe!
I will take full responsibility for the failure of this recipe........ We ended up throwing the whole thing out. Is is possible for turmeric to go bad? I followed the recipe completely. It was really awful tasting and my husband will USUALLY eat anything! Sorry!
I like Indian food, this is a good one. I changed it a little though. I think as suggested before by some other reviews it's a must to seperate the cauliflower into florets if you want to cook it in 30 minutes. Also I raised the temperature to 450 F, and it cooked perfectly. I used fresh garlic also added fresh ginger to the sauce, cut the garam masala in half and added some chili powder since I like my food hot. I didn't have any at home but next time I cook this dish I will sprinkle it with chopped cilantro before serving.
This is a fun dish to prepare and serve. In an earlier review, I forgot to mention that I have learned that I needed to bake the cauliflower in a *covered* dish, and increase the cooking time to at least 45 minutes. I like to serve it with a red lentil dahl.
I think the cauliflower would cook a bit better if 1/4" of water was added to baking pan. Makes a beautiful presentation.
We loved this! We will make it again and again! I liked it just as is, and I also liked it when I added some plain yogurt to the sauce for a creamy indian sauce. Creamy is big with me.
I followed other's advice and cut the cauliflower into florets then tossed it in the tumeric oil. After baking for 20 min it wasn't done and was starting to look a little dry so I added a little water and let it cook for another 20 min. I didn't have garlic powder or fresh tomatoes so I minced 2 garlic cloves and 1 can of tomato puree.
I think it came out very well and plan to make this dish again.
I had to leave my cauliflower in the oven for a lot
longer than 30 mins for it to cook. I also used tomato sauce instead of pureed tomatoes and real garlic instead of garlic powder. The result was
still a great tasting dish!
