Cut the cauliflower into flowerets, make sure it is not too small so that it will not get mashed while cooking. Boil 3 cup of water with little salt and turmeric. Once it started to boil, put off the flame and put all cleaned flowerets into the bowl and cover it for 10 mins. After 10 mins drain the water and keep the cauliflower aside (By doing this process, the worms in the flowerets if any will be killed and that will become safe for us to eat)
