Cauliflower Palya/ Spiced Cauliflower

I had a wonderful neighbour here in Milford..R...She is a very sweet lady and as long as she was in the neighbourhood, we used to have a lot of fun, we used to have pot-luck parties, luncheons at each i miss those noons...On one such luncheon, she had made this yummy cauliflower subzee along with poori.The taste still lingers on.. here is my take on it.

Cauliflower Palya
Califlower florets( i use the frozen variety cos of convenience) 1 lb
Onion 1 medium chopped
Tomato 1 medium chopped
Green Chillies 3-4
Sambar powder (Huli pudi)
Mustard seeds
Curry leaves
Corriander leaves(cilantro)
Heat oil in a non stick pan. Add mustard, jeera, hing, curry leaves and green chillies. Drop the chopped onions and salt to soften the onions. Once the onion is slightly brown, add the sambar powder. Follow it with tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are mushy. Add half a cup of water and the cauliflower florets, Cook covered till done. If there still remains some moisture, cook for a few more minutes uncovered. finish with corriander leaves.
