Cauliflower kheema / Gobi Kheema

Long time ago while  watching a cookery show in TV, the presenters Hairy bikers were trying to promote the veggies the Brits ignored and I was suprised to see cauliflower among the veggies they were trying to save as they  dont sell well in Britian as people here preferred  Broccoli ,the closest relative of cauliflower over it. In my case eventhough  I  preferred cauliflower over broccoli we too were not  picking up cauliflower often like broccoli and the show really made me think about it and now cauliflower is always there in our weekly shopping bag :) Thanks to the show !
