Cauliflower/ Gobi Masala

My wife Bhagya, loves gobi masala and any cauliflower dishes as a matter of fact.Me and wife have tried gobi masala at multiple restaurants and  the taste and flavor were different at different restaurants. We knew that was because of the masalas and the way they cook at each restaurants. My wife has her own spice mix when it comes to cauliflower dishes and this is just one of them.
