In this delicious side dish, Sai Viswanath seasons cauliflower with turmeric and ginger as well as mustard seeds and chile pepper (as cooks do in southern India), then oven-roasts them (a northern Indian technique). Tossing the cauliflower with tomatoes is an American influence, since Indians use tomatoes primarily in sauces. Delicious, Quick Side Dishes
