Cauliflower Stuffed Pull Apart Rolls/Bread/Stuffed Monkey Bread

Coming to day 2,themed under pull apart breads in Blogging marathon#65 is a cauliflower burji stuffed pull apart rolls.
Last week I had some leftover cauliflower stuffing after making gobi parathas for our dinner.Next when I was making the pull apart bread,suddenly got the idea of stuffing it in the roll.
The rolls came out so soft and fluffy and we enjoyed it with hot and sweet sauce and tomato ketchup.
As I already mentioned in my previous I made the bread dough in bulk and used it for both the breads.I used my bundt pan to make this bread,but it can be made in a regular round pan too.
