Place the florets in a microwave proof oven bag. Add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Shake the bag well so that all the florets are coated with the turmeric powder. Fold this bag loosely, place it in the microwave and steam it on high for 2 mins. Keep this aside.


Chop the tomato  and green chilly. Grind to a fine paste.


In a pressure pan heat the oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add the asafoetida/hinge.  Immediately add the curry leaves, onion and ginger-garlic paste saute till light brown. Now add the tomato chilly paste, kacha masala, goda masala and saute till oil leaves the sides of the pan. Add the cauliflower and 1 tablespoon coriander powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and saute on high flame for 4 - 5 mins.   Add  2 tablespoons  water. Cover with the lid and take one whistle on high flame.
