Cauliflower posto recipe - Cauliflower in poppy seed, mustard seeds gravy - fulkopi Posto recipe - Side dish for rice, roti, Chapathi, paratha recipes

When i visited my Bengali friend she served this side dish for roti. Initially I thought it was white gravy cauliflower curry. But later I tasted something different. When I asked her, she told me the unique taste is coming from poppy seeds and yellow mustard seeds. That's the first I heard about yellow mustard seeds. I left it and almost forgot too. Recently in an Indian grocery shop I saw yellow mustard seeds pocket.. These days I buy first before even deciding what can I do with it. Sometime end up buying stuff but never use it. So This time I made some resolution of making use of the stuff that I buy. Co-incidentally I saw Cauliflower Posto recipe at Hema's space. I called my friend for recipe.
