Malai Capsicum Masala

 When Viji had announced the SYS series,I missed it and when I contacted her , she was kind enough to immediately give me the secret ingredients , so that I could cook something nice with it. The numbers were 4 and 5 and that means I got Cauliflower and Tomato. Though I was a little skeptical to use cauliflower just when it had rained in chennai(for the fear of worms) , I finally found some good cauliflower and decided to cook some chatpata subzi which my daughter would like. So here is the recipe for the same
