About Phool Kophir Paturi (Cauliflower Dum - Bengali Style) Recipe

Paturi is a traditional Bengali recipe where generally the fish is coated in mustard paste and then steamed. It is cooked, wrapped in a banana leaf. But today I would like to share my version of a paturi style recipe with my favourite veggie - Cauliflower. It is a very simple, easy and equally delicious dish. As banana leaf was not available, I cooked the cauliflower, mixed with all the mentioned ingredients in a dum style. It is absolutely a fuss-free recipe and equally nutritious with very little oil. This side dish can be had with plain steamed rice, pulao or chapattis.
