Ingredients
  

  • 2 large cauliflower heads – cleaned, cut into tiny florets
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp pepper corns, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (check vegan status)
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Salt to taste

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F (conventional mode).
  • Pat dry the cauliflower with a kitchen towel. Cover the baking sheet with aluminium foil. Spray a little of the cooking spray over the foil.
  • In a separate pan, mix the cauliflower florets with the spices and oil. Mix with hand and set aside.
  • Line them over the baking sheet. Don’t over crowd the baking tray. I did the entire roasting in 3 batches.
  • Roast it for 30 minutes. You can roast for further few minutes to crisp up the surface but keep an eye to avoid burning.
  • Serve hot.
