Tandoori Gobi ~ Baked Version

Tandoored items have always been my favorite, the all-time being twice basted Tandoori chicken. The juicy and spicy chicken along with the crispy skin is a perfect accompaniment for naans or kulchas.
Its not only tandoored varieties but anything with a smoked flavor falls under the favie category. So when I had some cauliflower florets and the tummy was craving for some healthy evening snack I decided to try the veggie version. I served it with sauce but the mint-coriander-yogurt dip would have been the best.

This makes a great topping for pizzas or as a great filling for frankies or wraps.

~*What U Need*~
Cauliflower florets - 1/2 cup
Hung curd / Greek Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Red Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
Olive oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Cumin powder - a big pinch
Chicken Kebab / Tandoori masala - 1/2 tbsp

How I made it:
Soak the cauliflower florets in salted hot water for 5-10 mins. Drain water completely and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the other ingredients together, add the cauliflower florets and coat evenly. Refrigerate this for 2-3 hours.
Preheat oven to 220 C. Line a aluminum foil over a baking tray, arrange the marinated cauliflower florets and bake for 20-25 minutes. Turn the florets on both sides twice while baking.

Serve hot with sauce!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
