Cauliflower Curry

Cauliflower curry is a popular dish in our home from few years.The main reason is that it is one of the veggie we can buy easily here in Singapore.I cook cauliflower in different recipes,even in different curry recipes.This is one of my Sri Lankan style Cauliflower curry recipes which I use chili powder and tomato.Also I use some oil to fry cauliflower before cooking the curry.
Among the all vegetables, cauliflower is something which need to add for the meal regularly because of its health benefits. It has benefits of Anti-oxidation, Anti Inflammation,fiber & digestive. Also it is a rich source of Vitamin B.
Below is the dish which I prepared according to Sri Lankan style.

When the onion start to tender, add the cauliflower florets & mix well. Cook about 1-2 minutes with mixing well.
Then add all spices mentioned above & tomato slices. Mix well & close with a lid.
