Ingredients
  Cauliflower 2 Pound, cut into large florets (1 Head)
  Cumin seeds 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon

  Chopped fresh mint 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon

2. Meanwhile, in a small dry skillet, toast the cumin seeds over high heat, shaking the pan, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pound in a mortar, grind in a spice mill or chop with a knife to form a coarse powder.
3. In a large bowl, mix the cumin with the yogurt, mint, salt and pepper. Fold in the cauliflower and toss lightly to coat evenly. (The can be made up to 2 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate.) Serve slightly chilled.
