Cauliflower - 1 medium sized
Maida or all purpose flour - 1 cup (100 gms)
Milk - 1/2 ltr
Cheese - grated 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 big (cut into very small pieces)
Garlic - 6 flakes (cut into small pieces)
Green Chillies - 2
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Butter - 1/4 cup (unsalted)
Salt - To Taste
Turmeric Powder - 2 pinch 
Oil - 4 tbsp

Cut Cauliflower into florets. Boil them in water mixed with salt and turmeric powder. Mix maida in milk and filter it so that there will be no lumps. In a pan add the butter and saute onions, green chillies(slit in the middle) and garlic. Add the milk maida mixture to it and keep stirring it so that no lumps are formed. When it mixes thoroughly and forms a paste like consistency, reduce the flame to low and let it boil.

In the mean time fry the florets in oil (till they are half cooked) and add it to the gravy. Add salt to taste and cook closed for 5 mins in medium flame. Remove from flame add the butter, grated cheese. Decorate it with finely chopped coriander leaves and fried cashew nuts(optional).

Makes a great dish for Chappati, Fried Rice, Briyanis and Pulavs.
