Kasuri Methi Wale Gobi (Cauliflower with dried fenugreek leaves)

Cauliflower season has begun in my place and wherever look around it. This dish is truly remarkable and a must try for all lovers of Punjabi food using kasuri methi give this dish unique flavor. The main flavor comes from kasuri methi and green chillis are added for that little bit of heat. If you cannot handle too much heat then you could leave out either of them.  But the outcome was so tasty. Best combination as a side dish Roti/ Rice/ Pulao!!!
