Winter is the season for cauliflowers and the ones that you get now are so flavourful. You can add cauliflower to anything and it will elevate the taste. We Bengalis love cauliflower and it becomes an everyday vegetable for us all through winter. Here’s a list of 7 cauliflower recipes to try before you die. 

Phulkopir Roast

This is our most loved cauliflower recipe. It’s rich, almost indulgent and makes for a great celebratory meal along with luchi, porota or basanti polao. phulkopir roast

 

 

Phulkopir Cutlet

This is an evening snack, not a very popular one but this is quite a party appetiser. It is made with small cauliflower florets and potatoes shaped in the form of a cutlet and then crumb-coated and deep-fried.

Doodh Kopi

Simply translated as milk cauliflower and like the name, cauliflower is simmered and cooked in milk, ginger paste and garam masala. As simple as that and you can enhance it with cashew paste too.
