Cauliflower Poriyal

Cauliflower Poriyal

Cauliflower in any form is delectable. Cauliflower poriyal is one of the easiest and healthy dish that you can prepare without any compromise on taste.

Ingredients

Cauliflower- 1 (Medium size)

Tomato- 2 (Medium size finely chopped)

Onion- 1 (Medium size finely chopped)

Green chilli- 2

Coriander Leaves- Half a cup

Curry leaves- 1 sprig

Chilli powder- 1 tsp

Coriander Powder- 1 stp

Turmeric- ½ tsp

Garam Masala powder- 1 ½ tsp

Mustard seeds- ½ tsp

Oil- 2 tblspn

Method

Bring water to boil in a kadai, add cauliflower florets, turmeric powder and salt. Cover and let it cook for about 10 minutes. This helps in removing the impurities from cauliflower. Drain the water; wash the florets thoroughly in fresh water and set aside. Heat oil in a tawa, add mustard seeds. Once mustard seeds start popping, add curry leaves. Add onion and saute well till they become translucent. Add green chilli and tomato. Saute till tomato becomes soft. Add the cooked cauliflower and mix well. Add coriander, chilli, turmeric and Garam masala powder, mix well so that the masala is evenly coated on cauliflower florets. Add ¾ cup of water, salt and cook with the lid on. Cook for about 10 minutes till the water simmers and serve hot with rice or chapatti. Here I have served it with Steaming hot rice and rasam.
