We like Cauliflower in our daily cooking. But, I don’t like to cook Cauliflower as a curry always. I tried it as a spicy appetizer and came out very well. Actually I used Sri Lankan style Chicken devil recipe and substituted cauliflower instead of chicken. Also did some changes to spices. Final outcome was really good.
On the other way, Cauliflower is a vegetable which is good to add into regular diet because of its health benefits. Do you know, it is a very good source of vitamin C? I never thought! But found while reading some articles on Cauliflower healthy benefits and amazed to see it is a rich source for vitamin B & C.
I tried this as a spicy appetizer, but later served as a side dish with fried rice. It was good in both ways.
Here is the recipe, the ingredients are enough for 2 people with other dishes. However it only filled one small serving dish.
Ingredients (For 1 serving dish)
1 medium size onion
2 tspn ginger garlic paste
1-2 green chilies
1 tbspn red chili flakes
1 Red bell pepper
3 tbspn tomato sauce

Wash and cut cauliflower into florets. Deep fry cauliflower and keep aside.
Slice onion, green chili and bell pepper. Keep aside.
In a separate bowl, mix tomato sauce & soy sauce together. Keep aside.
In a pan, heat 3 teaspoons of oil. When oil is hot, add ginger garlic paste. Then add chili flakes. Mix well. In few seconds, add the sauce mixture & allow the sauce to become thick. Then add deep fried cauliflower, onion, red pepper & green chili. Mix well.
