Cauliflower Poriyal recipe | cauliflower recipes

Cauliflower poriyal is a very simple and easy poriyal , and even a perfect bachelor recipe too. I made this and clicked last year itself but pictures didn't turn out nice, so i didn't post. Then later i totally forgot about that and last week suddenly i remembered this. I have already posted cauliflower curry and cauliflower pepper fry recipe too. Also the recipe of cauliflower rice is also a super hit one. This is a scheduled post as i am not in town. Will reply to your mail and messages once i am back.
