[Recipe Redux] Tandoori Gobi | Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Tandoori Masala

Out of all the vegetables I like, Cauliflower is my most favorite. I sneakily add it to my pastas, stuff into my bread, simply fry it and even use it as a substitute for an authentic meat dish. Today's recipe 'Oven Roasted Cauliflower with Tandoori Masala' too is an adaptation of Melissa Clark's popular recipe which I already made it for the blog. When done right, I believe there is nothing that beats a humble cauliflower dish. So, when the awesome people at Recipe Redux gave 'Spring Cleaning' as a theme for this month, I raided my pantry for a condiment I hardly used before (Tandoori Masala, which I got in the goodie bag of IFBM 2014), grabbed a cauliflower (I always have one in my fridge), tossed everything with good olive oil and let the magic happen. Except for the few stirs in between while the veggies are roasting, there is not much to do for this dish. Yet, when served hot, it will amaze you on how incredibly flavorful it is. :-)

How to make Tandoori Gobi | Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Tandoori Masala Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 40 minutes 

Serves 2

Adapted from Roasted Cauliflower with Whole Cumin Seeds


1 whole cauliflower, washed and cut into equal-sized florets
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tsp tandoori masala (use more for a spicier version)
salt & black pepper - to taste
1/2 tsp red chilli powder (optional)


1. Along with cauliflower, any other firm veggies like bell pepper, root veggies etc can be baked together.
2. If you don't have Tandoori masala, any other spice powder like cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala can be easily substituted.
3. Garnish with any herbs like cilantro, parsley etc


Preheat oven to 400F or 200C. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil, place cauliflower florets, chopped garlic, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle tandoori masala, salt & pepper, red chilli powder (if using). Toss florets until they are evenly coated. Add more olive oil, if desired. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring once or twice in between so that they are evenly caramelized. Serve with any dip/sauce of your choice (or) serve with rice/bread for a hearty meal.
