CAULIFLOWER MASALA-SIDE DISH FOR ROTI

           Last week when i bought two cauliflowers i thought of making some gravy with that as a side dish for roti. For the first time i am trying a gravy with cauliflower and it came out so well and my son who never eats roti with any side dish, had this and he really enjoyed eating this cauliflower masala.
