ABOUT Cauliflower Tawa Pulao RECIPE

Inspired by those paleo recipes that substitute cauliflower for rice, I so wanted to try an interesting desi version . And what could be quicker or easier than this Mumbai style street food aka tawa pulao . A dash of cheese and the yumminess of the pao bhaji masala makes it a must try recipe !
