As u said it is a nice reciepe for snacks especially with hot Indian Chai (Tea)
by the way how much salt did u put?
1 teaspoon of salt should be fine for a whole bunch of cauliflower florets.

this recipe came out well. I have posted it in my blog also. I added fennel seeds in it. Also i avoided coriander leaves instead added curry leaves.
