Cauliflower masala curry- Introducing the Non vegetarian flavors to the vegetarians

Cauliflower is my all time favorite vegetable. When ever I'm tired or not in a mood to cook, I'll put cauliflower in my refrigerator to work. It is because it cooks fast and tastes wonderful. I personally like cauliflower manchuria very much, since it is a deep fried food I prepare it occasionally. My hubby who is not a big fan of manchuria also began to like this recipe. Now coming to the cauliflower masala recipe, this is for those people who started practising vegetarianism and carve for non vegetarian flavors. It is a rich flavorful and spicy curry prepared almost in a similar way you prepare chicken curry in Indian style.
