Cauliflower Poriyal jest jedną z potraw serwowanych z okazji festiwalu Navratri.
Poriyal means in Tamil Nadu fried or stewed vegetable dish, you could say – curry.
Typically, there must be primarily spices – black mustard seeds, turmeric, coriander and – at least a bit – dried chili peppers and black gram, which thickens the dish and gives it a specific flavor.

|red chili powder||1 small pinch|
|garam masala||1 table spoon|
