Mughlai Cauliflower

In this recipe the cauliflower is fried and then used, but wanted to reduce the quantity of oil and keep this as light as possible.  Let me tell you still this gravy tasted yummy and light on the on tummy.  My family enjoyed this Mughlai Cauliflower  for lunch.  So here is the recipe.

2 Tablespoon Paneer - grated
1 Cup water
2 Tablespoon Fresh Cream
1/3 Cup Oil
