Notes | FAQ

- Adjust the quantity of spices and salt based on the size of your cauliflower.
- Since this is a soup, the flavor of the spices should be subtle and not overpowering. Adjust based on your taste preference.
- I used freshly made coconut milk which was not too thick or thin. In case of using coconut milk from the can, adjust the quantity based on the thickness of the coconut milk.
- For added flavor, you can choose to use Vegetable broth instead of water.
- Adjust the quantity of liquid based on your desired thickness for soup.
