Purple Cauliflower Stir-fry

I bought this violet cauliflower during one of our Farmer's market visits. There were green cauliflowers, white cauliflowers and these purple ones. This colour attracted me very much, and I selected this one. :)
I didn't find much of a difference in taste comparing with the normal white cauliflowers. But since the veggie was so fresh, it was so tasty. After making a kurma for roti's, I tried this simple stir fry.
Purple Cauliflower florets - 1 cup
Olive Oil-1tablespoon 
Cumin seeds-1/2teaspoon
Curry powder-11/2teaspoon
Coconut milk powder-2teaspoons

Wash and cut the purple cauliflower florets into uniform size chunks. 
Heat oil in a wide pan, add in the cumin seeds and let it splutter.
Then add in the cauliflower florets.
Toss it well, close the pan and let it cook on medium heat for 3 minutes. Open the pan, sprinkle the curry masala powder, salt, toss it again.
Close the pan, and cook for 3 more minutes(or until the veggie is done). Now add in the coconut milk powder, mix it with the cauliflower.
Cook on low heat for a minute and delicious stir-fry is ready to serve.
I had it with sambar rice & rasam rice, but it goes well with roti too! The cauliflower should be crunchy, so don't over cook it. The total cooking process will take less than 10 minutes.
