So simple, so tasty, so easy. I first discovered this yummy recipe awhile back when I was in the mood for something that satisfies my craving for authentic Indian food that was also easy to make.

You’ll want to include cauliflower as one of the cruciferous vegetables you eat on a regular basis if you want to receive the fantastic health benefits provided by this vegetable family.

The five fold benefit of consuming cauliflower regularly:-

Anti- oxidant properties:-As an excellent source of vitamin C, and a very good source of manganese, cauliflower provides us with two core conventional antioxidants.

The detox support it provides:-   The reason it’s so important to bring cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables into our diet on a regular basis is that it provides the detox system adequate nutritional support as we continue to expose ourselves to unwanted toxins through our lifestyle and our dietary choices.

Anti-inflammatory benefit:-As an excellent source of vitamin K, cauliflower provides us with one of the hallmark anti-inflammatory nutrients.

Cardiac Health:- The anti-inflammatory support provided by cauliflower (including its vitamin K and omega-3 content) makes it a food also capable of providing cardiovascular benefits.

Digestive health:- The fiber content of cauliflower—over 9 grams in every 100 calories—makes this  vegetable a great choice for digestion.

Hope you enjoy this recipe.
