Accompaniments, Egg, Indian, Side dish for roti

Cauliflower egg keema

This is a  side dish for chapathi/ roti or can have as a side dish for rice. I saw this in a TV show years back. From then I often make this and it’s one of our favourite dish. Please don’t get mislead by the name ‘keema’ , this dish has no meat in it. I just called it ‘keema’ because of mincing cauliflower and egg.
