Grilled Cauliflower Tikka Masala#SundayFunday

This dish is so delicious and creamy, you will love this dish.
For this recipe if have used mustard oil, this oil gives a delicious and nutty flavor to the dish. Mustard oil is also a healthy oil. Once you acquire a taste of the oil you will love using it in cooking. Do try this recipe with this oil. I have made the gravy thick to enjoy it with chapatti, if you want to have with steamed rice then add more hot water and adjust the gravy consistency accordingly. This crowd-pleaser of a dish for vegetarians, a perfect, warming bowl of comfort food.

For The Cauliflower/Gobi Florets
In a large pot or kadhai, pour water add a teaspoon of salt bring it to a boil. Once the water comes to a rapid boil, add the cauliflower floret. Bring this to a boil and switch off the flame. Drain the water and let it cool down completely.

For The Cauliflower Marination
In a large mixing bowl combine, all the given ingredients to a smooth mixture, add in the cooled cauliflower florets, mix well. Set it aside for 30 minutes. 
In the mean time let's prepare the gravy
In a large pan / kadai, heat mustard oil, when it comes to a smoking point, switch off the flame let is cool for a minute or two. Now switch on the flame and fry the chopped onions, ginger and garlic till it just starts to turn golden, add the blanched and chopped tomato, sauté it for 2 minutes. Switch off the flame and let it cool.
Let's get back to the cauliflower
Heat the oven to 200°C, with both the elements on. Arrange the marinated cauliflower in a lined tray. Do not add the marinade, keep this aside, we will use it in the gravy.
Place the tray in the oven and let it grill for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove the tray out and turn the sides of the florets. Turn the oven setting to grill only and place the tray on the top rack and grill it for 10 minutes, half way through change the sides of the tray.    
They will be slightly charred see pic.
Back To The Gravy
In blender jar add the sautéed onion and tomato along with the oil, all the given spices and yogurt, grind this to a fine paste.
Pour this back into the same kadai without adding any oil.
Wash the blender jar with little water, pour this also into the kadai. Add the all the remaining cauliflower marinade and wash that bowl too with little water. Add another cup of water and mix all this well, add salt and sugar and give it good mix. Now switch on the flame and on medium high flame stir it continuously till the gravy comes to a rolling boil. Once it comes to a rolling boil, cover with a lid and reduce the flame to low and let it simmer till oil surfaces. 
Once the oil surfaces our gravy is done. Now add the garam masala, crushed kasuri methi, cream and give it good mix, let is simmer for a minutes. Switch off the flame add the grilled cauliflower florets and mix. Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves and a drizzle of cream.
Enjoy with chapatti or naans.
