A good accompaniment with rice or roti. A veggie dish for vegans and all. Tasty and yummy.


*This is usually called cilantro in the U.S.


Cut the cauliflower into florets. Peel ginger and garlic and chop fine.

Heat a pan, add oil. When oil is hot add the onion and chillies. Then add mustard and cumin seeds,then add masala, tumeric powder, tomato, ginger and garlic. Let them fry for a minute and put in the cauliflower and peas.

Stir fry for about 10 minutes until the cauliflower cooks a little. Add few drops of water so that it doesn't burn. Add the salt. Cover and cook till done. Serve with rice or roti.

At a fast food place called Texas Tom's, they have breaded cauliflower. I think it is deep fried and it is delicious. It is kind of like the breading for onion rings only with a cheesy taste. If anyone knows what I'm talking about and has an idea of how to recreate them, I would appreciate it!

1 head cauliflower
3-4 eggs
3 tbsp. sweet basil
3 tbsp. flour
Garlic powder to taste
Onion powder to taste
Seasoned salt to taste

Boil cauliflower for about 10-15 minutes. Beat eggs and basil together in a bowl. Shake in garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Three shakes of each. Add flour. Batter should be the consistency of pancake batter. Drain cauliflower, dip in batter and fry in hot oil until golden brown.


1 med. size cauliflower
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 c. flour
Salt & pepper
1/2 c. milk
2 tbsp. melted butter
Oil for frying

Wash and trim cauliflower. Break into flowerets. Put eggs, flour, salt and pepper in a bowl, combine milk and butter and add to flour mixture to make a batter. Dip flowerets into batter. Fry breaded flowerets a few at a time, in hot oil. Serve hot. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
