Cauliflower is a favorite veggie for all of us at home. I made this simple kurma to be served with chapathi. I usually add coconut to my kurmas, but this time it was with out any coconut. The khus khus and cashews five it a rich creamy consistency. It may seem like a lot of steps involved, but it's easy though!
To make it more colorful, add any vegetables you have in hand.
