Cauliflower Sabzi

A dry preparation with cauliflower. The masala spikes up the flavor and taste of the cauliflower. This has been a favorite sabzi to go with roti. Mix the sabzi with little yogurt, it tastes so good.


1 - Cauliflower, cut into florets
Oil to fry

Masala powders

2 to 3 tbsp - Coriander powder
1/2 to 1 tsp - Red chili powder
1/4 tsp - Turmeric powder
1.5 tsp - Chat masala powder

1/2 tsp - Amchur powder/ dry mango powder
1/4 tsp - Black salt
1/4 tsp - Jeera powder
1 tsp - Salt


1 ) Wash and drain cauliflower florets very well. Heat a good amount of oil in a kadai /wok to deep fry cauliflower. In small batches, fry cauliflower till crisp and lightly brown in color. Drain excess oil out, by spreading fried cauliflower in a kitchen paper towel.

2 ) Mix all the masala powders together and keep ready. In the same kadai, heat little oil on low heat. Add the mixed masala and stir well. Take care not to burn the masala. Immediately add the fried cauliflower and mix with the masala and fry for 2 minutes. Take off the stove and serve.

Serve with roti. In picture is Richa's soft and tasty sweet potato paratha.

Pravs said...

Seema: Yes, its good. Try the recipe.

Richa : Masala does jazz up the cauliflower :) I have corrected the broken link.

Manisha : I know, deep frying part can be a put off for a health conscious person..deep frying brings out the real taste though. Do try.

Siri : Do share your recipe ... want to try with other masala's too.

Jyothi :Thanks :) Do try.

Padmaja : Wow..isn't that something ? Glad to know the pics are tempting for you to try this one out.

Kalva : I have tried sauted version too.. but always deep frying brought out the real taste. You can for sure do stir frying the cauliflower with little oil.

Easycraft : Okay. Do try and let me know.

Jayashree : Thanks :D
