A very tasty cauliflower dish. The combination of cumin, coriander, turmeric and red pepper flakes was definitely the hero part, which gave the cauliflower lots of delicious flavors, especially with the braising, the florets absorbed all the yumminess and turned out tender-crisp. Yogurt added extra creaminess and slightly richness. Definitely worth making it again :)
