Exotic Indian Scented Roasted Cauliflower

I love the flavors found in Indian cooking.  For this dish I decided to roast the cauliflower to give it a different flavor and texture than traditional Indian food.  


2 T canola oil
1 t ground cumin
1 t colonji seeds (onion seeds) 
1/2 t ground turmeric
1 t cayenne pepper
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt 
1/2 t fresh ground pepper

1/2 head of a large cauliflower, cleaned and separated into 2″ florets
1/4 sweet onion chopped into 1″ dice
1/4 c fresh chopped cilantro

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a small bowl combine the oil, cumin, onion seeds, turmeric, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Whisk until combined.

In a 1/2 pan combine the oil mixture and cauliflower and onion until all of the cauliflower is coated with oil mixture.

Place cauliflower mixture in oven and roast for approximately 20 minutes tossing a few times to insure even cooking on all sides of cauliflower.  

Garnish/mix in fresh chopped cilantro and serve immediately.
