A simple cauliflower fry

If a recipe is simple, requires less cutting and cleaning and can be done in 10 minutes, who doesn't want to try it. I love super fast recipes. I hate cutting and cleaning as much as I like cooking.
When it is raining and you are in a mood for some spicy tangy food and you are lazy to cook, here is a simple recipe for you.

Cauliflower Fry


  • Cauliflower florets: 2 cups
  • Dhaniya(Coriander) powder: 1 1/2 tsp
  • Jheera(Cumin) powder: 1 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric: 1 tsp
  • Sal to taste
  • Lime juice: 1/2 tsp
  • Aamchur powder: 1/2 tsp( optional)
  • Red chilli powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Ground black pepper: 1/2 tsp
  • Oil: 2 tbsp
  • Water: 1/2 cup
  • Chopped Cilantro: 2 tbsp


  1. Rinse the cauliflower under water and cut it into small florets.
  2. Add oil to a pan and add turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, aamchur powder, red chilli powder, black pepper and fry for few seconds.
  3. Now add the cauliflower to the oil and gently mix them so that the spice mixture is evenly coated.
  4. Now add the salt and water and cover the pan with a lid and cook for few minutes until the cauliflower is cooked. Keep stirring in between. Add more water if required.
  5. Once the cauliflower is cooked, remove the lid and fry until the water is evaporated.
  6. Add lime juice and adjust the salt.
  7. Garnish with cilantro.
  8. Serve hot with steamed rice or bread/roti.
Note: Adding aamchur is optional. If you are not using aamchur, add more lime juice.
