3 tablespoons yogurt

1-2 teaspoons honey

1-2 teaspoons lime juice

Salt to taste

Mix together well. The sauce should be sweet sour.

Set aside.

2-3 tablespoons nuts, pine nuts or almonds.

Toast on a pan till golden, set aside.

1 cauliflower head, cut into bite sized chunks

1-2 garlic, minced

1-2 shallots, minced

1 teaspoon chives, minced (optional, if no chives, add some more shallots)

Zest from 1 large lemon

1 teaspoon chili flakes

2 tablespoons EACH basil, cilantro, mint, minced

Lime juice

Add oil to a pan and saute cauliflower till browned all over. It is ok if they are a bit raw. Set aside. Alternatively, I broil them in the oven with a spray of oil, salt and pepper.

Add a touch of oil and add garlic, chili flakes and shallots and cook on medium till the onions are just turning golden. Add the lemon zest, chives and sauté for 1 minute. Add ten fried cauliflower and fresh herbs and lime juice and toss well. Top with yen yogurt sauce.

Enjoy with pita bread or naan bread.
