BBQ Whole Cauliflower Tikka#SundayFunday

This marinated cauliflower tikka I took it for our homestay at Lonavla with my family. The manager arranged a grill for us with all necessary accessories. The smoky flavor was awesome in this and was relished by all. If you do not have a grill then bake it in the oven and give the flavor of liquid smoke or smoke it with charcoal.

To Blanche The Whole Cauliflower
1 Medium Whole Cauliflower
1 Teaspoon Heaped Turmeric Powder
½ Teaspoon Heaped Sea Salt
For  The Marination
½ Cup Greek Yogurt/ Hung Curd
1 Tablespoon Vinegar Or Lemon Juice
1½ Teaspoons Ginger Garlic Paste
1 Teaspoon Heaped Homemade Tandoori Masala
½ Teaspoon Fennel Powder
1½ Teaspoon Roasted Chana Powder
Salt to taste
1 Cube Vegetable Seasoning
2 Tablespoon Olive Oil 0r Mustard Oil
2 Tablespoons Mustard Oil
½ Teaspoon Ajwain / Carom seeds
1½ Teaspoon Kasuri Methi
2 Green Chilies- finely chopped

In a large pot/kadai heat water with salt and turmeric powder. When the water comes to boil add the whole cauliflower and blanche is for just 10 minutes.
Heat mustard oil or olive oil or any vegetable oil of your choice in a pan, then switch of the flame in a pan, add carom seeds and the chopped Green chilies sauté for a minute. Let it cool. Mix all ingredients in yogurt along with this flavored oil well. Pour this into a piping bag and pipe it into the crevices from the bottom of cauliflower then rub the marinade on the top too. Marinate this for at least 30 minutes. I left it overnight to marinate in the refrigerator. 
Now grill it on a charcoal grill or bake it at 200°C in a preheated oven with both the elements on for for 20-25mins.
Serve this with coriander chutney and a sprinkle of lemon juice.
