Badami Tandoori Cauliflower and Sweet Potato with Beetroot Chutney


 One of the dish at Fisherman’s Wharf was Badami Broccoli with Beetroot Chutney and Green Chutney… we loved it…. 

Coming back home… wanted to try and make my version of the dish… 

I didn’t have broccoli at home.. hence used cauliflower and sweet potatoes… it’s healthy as no oil has been used…and the cheese can be skipped.

 The Beetroot Chutney is also so very delicious… super easy to make… this Chutney can be served with any fried dish or eaten as a spread on bread… it’s a vegetarian dish…
