[editor's note: recipe was corrected as a result of this review] You haven't mentioned how much cauliflower to use! It doesn't figure anywhere in the ingredients! I had to make a rough estimate, and used around 1 cup of cauliflower florets for 2 servings. Also, the cauliflower seemed a little undercooked, so next time I'll probably half-cook them as well before frying. Otherwise, a very tasty recipe... the vast array of spices make all the difference!
