Always wash cauliflower under tap water. Chop them into florets along with leaves. Immerse them in warm water plus salt.This way if there are any worms Or dust particles they will come out.

Also immerse chopped potatoes in water else they will start darkening.
I didn't add any water to this curry. But if you like a thinner consistency then add water.

Instead of melon seed you could use almonds Or cream Or curd.
