Cauliflower Capsicum Masala Stir Fry

     I like cauliflower stir fry more than a poriyal n subzi..its so cook n very tasty too.This time i tried baking them.This method reduces time n energy.I made this as a side dish for simple rasam sadham,so i want to make it little spicy i added some freshly gounded spice powder.Its completely your choice to add the masala powder if you don't want avoid it n try in your usual stlye with baked one.really the fry gets ready in few minutes with little crispy n no moisture, a perfect stir fry.
