1 onion, chopped

1 medium sized cauliflower, cut into small florettes

Fry the onion in 3 tsp of ghee or olive oil on a low heat until translucent.

Add curry, tumeric and mustard seeds, stir and cook for a minute. Turn off the heat and set aside.

Steam the cauliflower. Be careful not to overcook it.
