Cauliflower Stir Fry




Cauliflower stir fry is a quick and simple dish. It can be used as a side dish for rice or as an appetizer. Cauliflower is a lovely vegetable,  nutritious , low in fat and high in dietary fiber. This is somewhat a roasted form of cauliflower which my family enjoyed. Here I have used the pan fry method. You can also roast them in the oven. Try this easy recipe.

Ingredients
Cauliflower florets - 2 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Egg- 1
Corn flour- 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

Cut and clean cauliflower florets add salt and 5 to 6 tsp of water and cook in high in microwave oven for four minutes. Beat egg and mix in ginger- garlic paste, fried onion paste,chilly powder,pepper powder, turmeric and garam masala and mix with the cauliflower. Gently mix in the masala with out breaking the florets.Sprinkle corn flour ( I took half amount of corn flour and half of bread crumbs) and toss them gently. Heat a frying pan with two tsp of oil and spread out the cauliflower and it get roasted in medium heat for a minute. Stir them occasionally and put off heat when all sides are roasted. Serve warm( if you like add lemon juice just before serving).
