Cauliflower mince is a very popular way of cooking this versatile vegetable . It tastes very different from the regular cauliflower recipes. It can be used as pie or wrap filling too. I honestly just love to have it with rotis and a raita. It is very satisfying and a great substitute for minced meat.
1 cup of chopped onions
2 cups of finely chopped cauliflower
1 tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
A pinch of turmeric powder ( more for its curative properties than colour or taste)
Chopped green chillies and salt to taste
1/2 cup of coriander leaves
1/2 teaspoon of garam masala ( optional)
4 tablespoons of oil ( sunflower or olive)
Heat the oil in a pan, i used a wok because i like a wide cooking surface for my food. Once heated add the cumin seeds and let them splutter, then add the chopped onions and let them brown without covering the pan. Once they are browned add the ginger garlic paste and chopped green chillies and cook for half a minute. Then add salt and about 1/4 cup of water and let the whole mixture cook till the oil leaves the sides of the pan.
Once the onion mixture is dry add the turmeric powder and the minced cauliflower and mix. Add the tomatoes and chopped coriander leaves and cook till the tomato softens. Check seasoning and correct if necessary. You can then add garam masala and red chilli powder if you wish.
A delicious way to eat cauliflower. I had it with rotis and also a simple raita which was chopped onions, tomatoes, green chillies and coriander leaves. I added salt and chaat masala
This is a complete simple vegetarian meal.
