C - Cauliflower Pachhadi/Cauliflower Pickle

Cauliflower Pickle is a very simple recipe to make but it tastes delicious with dosas, rice and I came to know when couple of my friends tried it with veg biryani... 
So, needless to say the curries I made to go with the biryani went as leftovers for them. Of course along with all the remaining cauliflower pickle too.
The way the pickle is made, keeps the cauliflower crunchy yet all the spices are nicely absorbed by the cauliflower enhancing the taste.
You can store in an airtight container for 2 weeks or in a refrigerator for a month.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes 
Cook Time: 10 minutes 
Mixing Time: 5 minutes 

Ingredients:
Cauliflower florets: 4 cups
Oil: 1 cup
Red chili powder: 1/4 cup
Turmeric: 1 teaspoon 
Lemons : 2 large 
Garlic: 10 cloves 
Salt to taste 

To Dry roast :
Aavalu/Mustard seeds : 1 tablespoon
Fenugreek seeds/Mentulu : 1/2 teaspoon 

Method:

Cut the cauliflower in bite size florets. Clean and completely dry them.
Dry roast mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds, cool them off and grind into a fine powder.
Take the garlic in a mortar pestal and chop it roughly.
Mix all ingredients except lemon juice and rest it overnight. Mix the lemon juice from the lemons, mix well and let it rest for couple of hours before tasting.
The pickle can be stored in an airtight container for 2 weeks if it's not all gone by then....
