Turmeric cauliflower pilaf

Served with grilled veggies or a dhal this is a great main or side depending on
your mood. I love any recipe where it all cooks in the one pan then gets topped
with freshness from the farm (thankyou Streamside organics). Should be said,
the yellow in this is quite a lot, thankyou Turmeric and curry powder, but I say
if you’re gonna go there, then lets really GO there- cauliflower LOVES spice.
Grab a big spoon and serve this with Indian chutneys, raita and garlic naan
breads for a FEAST for the whole fam to enjoy.
