Quick cauliflower stir fry / Cauliflower varuval

Cauliflower fry / varuval - This recipe is not too spicy. But we can adjust the seasoning based on the requirement. This recipe goes well with variety rices ( Lemon rice, curd rice, sambhar rice...). This requires very less cooking time.


1. Cauliflower - 1 no - washed and cut into bite sized
2. Mastard seeds + urad daal (white lentil) - 1 tbs
3. Garlic - 3 cloves (crushed roughly)
4. Curry leaves - 3 nos
5. Cilantro - 1/2 handful (washed and chopped)
6. Cooking oil - 2 tbs
7. Garam masala - 2 tbs
8. Salt to taste


1. Heat 5 cups water in a big vessel and bring it to boil. Switch off the stove and put all the cauliflower into it. After 15 mins strain water completely.
2. Heat 1 tbs of cooking oil in pan and add mustard seeds + urad daal. After 30 sec add curry leaves. Immediately add the crushed garlic. After 30 sec add the garam masala + salt together. Before the masala burns quickly add the cauliflower and mix thoroughly so that the masala gets coated around the cauliflower.
3. Add the remaining oil and cook slowly in medium flame. Stir consiously after every 10 mins. Add cilantros and remove from flame.
Serve hot with rice.
