Cauliflower-Beans Masala

My last week went very busy but the weekends were quite relaxing :). I went easy on cooking too and had this easy yet flavourful vegetable recipe. I love to eat vegetables (and sometimes only vegetables!!). This season we planted many of them, and now I am eagerly waiting for the results. Nothing is equal to the freshness of homegrown veggies and also it bring along a sense of satisfaction and happiness. Well, this recipe is simple with ingredients easy to find at home. It goes well with all kinds of breads. So try this someday and cook the natural way!! Hope you like it!!
