  1. Marinate the shrimp with a pinch of salt and turmeric. Allow to marinate for about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the mustard oil in a pan allowing it come to a smoking point, add the cumin, reduce the heat and then add the cauliflower. Saute until cauliflower starts to brown a bit on the edges.
  3. Add in the chillies, the chilli powder, the nigella seeds, and a little water. Cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender ( as tender as you like it - I like mine with a little bite to it)
