this looks like a decent recipe. I do cook cauliflower shaak every now and then but its kindof different. I do put some asafoetida in the oil at begining. Also I don't use garam masala, which I will try .. also I put most of the masala on top after putting the cauliflower in oil and i got to try your variation of mixing all masala beforehand.
