Cutting cauliflower into small, flat segments ensures even cooking and well-distributed flavours. I've added curry, coriander, cumin, and chili lime powder for a really nice kick. This is easy to prepare and makes a big impression.


Prep Time: 6 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes


  • 1/2 lb cauliflower, cut into flat pieces
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp chili lime powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • cooking oil
  • 2 tsp flour


  1. Mix the spices and the salt together and sprinkle on the both sides of the cauliflower pieces.
  2. Sprinkle with flour all over.
  3. Heat some oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add cauliflower and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Flip over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes, until golden.

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir in water. Refrigerate 2-3 hours. Place cauliflower in vegetable steamer over boiling water; cover and steam 3-5 minutes or until crisp tender.


Drain and cool.

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.
