Get a pot of water boiling and add some salt in the pot


Cut the green part of the cauliflower and divide the head into small to medium sized florets


Once the water is boiling add the cauliflower florets for one minute (Process of blanching)


Remove from the hot water and run the cauliflower under cold water to cool it down


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C


Using a paper towel dry the cauliflower florets


Toss them in some olive oil and lay them out flat on a greased baking sheet (you can put some parchment paper down instead too)


Roast the florets for 20 minutes first, flip the pieces on the other side and roast for another 10-15 minutes till you see nice charring on them


For the dressing add the spices, minced garlic and honey to the yogurt and mix well. Add salt and lemon/lime as per your liking


Drizzle the dressing over the charred roasted cauliflower and enjoy!
