    • hey shri, this is a stone tray from manipur used for cooking and serving. works even in oven and microwave. these stone pots are on the expensive side and have to be handled carefully. if they fall, they break.

      got it from a north east exhibition. they have a lot of variety of pots, pans and even stone bowls, mugs and glasses. awesome and excellent stuff. even look great in food photography. best part is you can use it on fire, baking oven, grill and microwave oven.

      if you are interested, you can contact she is the entrepreneur of longpi stone pottery which sell these amazing stuff.

    • dear neela.

      you won’t get the same crispiness in a microwave oven. in the microwave, the cauliflower will get cooked, but there will not be any browning. if are ok with no browning, then you can cook the cauliflower in the microwave. if they become or look dry while getting cooked, brush some olive oil on them. you can try and let me know.

      you can also grill the cauliflower florets. if you have an electric grill or if you have a grill pan which can be used on a gas stove, you can grill the cauliflower in it.
