Tandoori Cauliflower (Gobhi)

Tandoori cauliflower or tandoori gobhi is a popular dish among the Indian vegetarian food enthusiasts. The trick to the taste of this dish lies in the marinade. You may make it more or less spicy according to your taste, and cooking it in the oven brings in almost the same effect as the traditional smoky flavor of a tandoor (which is a clay oven).
