Rice is a staple in every Asian home, Instead of preparing the usual white rice, I have added cauliflower and spices to the rice. This combo turns out perfect for a quick fix meal. Adding chili powder is optional, you can omit this altogether but it gives really a nice flavor and color to this dish.
Yield : 8 servings
2 C rice rinsed
4 C water
2 green chili slit
1 Onion chopped
1 tsp ginger minced
1 tsp garlic mince
1 C cauliflower cut into small pieces
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
3 TB ghee/oil
salt to taste
toasted cashew nuts (optional)
Heat the oil, add in onion and fry until light brown. Now add ginger, garlic and green chili, fry until fragrant.
Add in chili powder, turmeric and salt, fry for a minute. Add little water. Pour the cauliflower, stir until well coated with spice.
Add the rice and water, cook until the water evaporates. Reduce the heat to the lowest, cover pot and continue cooking until rice is fully cooked about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, serve garnished with coriander leaves.and cashew nut.
