Red Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp

Bring to boil few cups of water, add cauliflower florets and turmeric powder.
Boil till cauliflower turns just soft and strain the cooked cauliflower.
Alternatively, steam the washed cauliflower florets.

Then add chopped ginger and grind again.
Finally add the grated coconut, red chilli powder, few tablespoons of water and grind into smooth paste.
Remove the poppy seeds and coconut paste into a bowl for later use.
