Adraki Gobi or Ginger flavoured Cauliflower or Adai Phoolkopi

Adraki Gobi is a delicious vegetable recipe with a lovely ginger flavour.It is cooked with ginger and some other spices...many use onion and garlic in this recipe...but I did not use onion and garlic just to get aromatic flavour of ginger.It is best enjoyed with roti, paratha or pulao .
