Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetable. Basically it is available fresh in winter season , but nowadays it is like piece of bread. Though cauliflower in winter season taste better than now . Still I love it so much! In Bengal cauliflower can be prepared in various types. One of them is phulkofir dalna or cauliflower with potato curry. Here dalna represents curry . Some famous dalna recipe from my kitchen is like Dhokar dalna,  Echorer Dalna, Patoler Dalna, Chanar Dalna .All of these are how tempting ,I cannot explain you. This tasty cauliflower dish will go very nicely with rice as well as chapathi. Anyway it is not taking much more time to cook . But remember you have to fry cauliflower florets finely, otherwise it is not taste good ! Lets try this one at your kitchen ...

If you ask about health benefits of cauliflower then I must say it is very good source of phosphorus, manganese, omega-3 fatty acid. It has plenty of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6 and folate.
