During winters, it is a very common sight to see road side vendors selling big heads of cauliflowers. I like to buy often and make different dishes like cauliflower fry, bhurjee, manchurian etc. This cauliflower curry also known as Dahi Gobhi is also popular in Northern India served with roti and rice. Cauliflower cooked with yogurt and spices makes this a tasty dish. 

I love the simplicity of making this dish. It takes very little time and does not require much grinding and chopping. The final dish will also be enjoyed by everyone.
