A twist in the cauliflower recipe

Tip for roasted peanut powder

Making roasted peanut powder at home is quite simple. Here's how to go about it.

  1. Heat a pan, and add raw unsalted peanuts
  2. Roast them switching between high and medium heat until they turn a shade of light brown
  3. Add them to a mixer, and blend them, keeping in mind not to blend them too smooth. Coarse peanut powder tastes better than fine powder.

Weekends are usually when my culinary skills take a creative turn. I love food, and I love creating new recipes without prior thinking. This weekend, my appetite took a vegetarian course, and settled down with a cauliflower and a few potatoes. I picked up the baton (read cooking utensils), and set down to experiment. Here's the recipe.


Ingredients

  • Cauliflower - 1 medium sized chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • Potatoes - 4 medium sized chopped into 1/2 inch square pieces
  • Tomatoes - 2 medium finely chopped
  • Green chilli (optional) - 1 medium slit into two pieces
  • Butter - about 1 tablespoon
  • Oil of your choice - about 1 tablespoon
  • Salt - to taste
  • Black pepper - a pinch
  • Roasted peanut powder - 2 tablespoons

Method

  1. Heat the butter and the oil in a hot pan
  2. Add the cauliflower florets, the potatoes, and the tomatoes
  3. Add salt, pepper, and the green chilli
  4. Stir fry on high heat for a couple of minutes
  5. Simmer with the pan covered
  6. Switch between stir frying on high heat, and simmering with the pan covered every five minutes
  7. In about half an hour, check if the vegetable are tender
  8. Add more salt if required
  9. Add the roasted peanut powder
  10. Stir fry for another five minutes
  11. Serve and relish

      The recipe sounds great and the roasted peanut powder sounds yummy. One thought that might enhance the hub is a better picture since this one is a little blurry and hard to see what it is. Other than that, I like how simple it is.

      A couple questions, I assume the potatoes are raw, what kind work best with this? I assume a wok works okay.

      Yes the potatoes are raw, they would get cooked together with the cauliflower.

      I made it in a non-stick pan, I suppose a wok would be fine as well :)

      Hi Senoritaa! Great recipe again, I must say. I showed it to my bf, and he's gonna try yours. Looks yummy!

      His restaurant serves a simple fried cauliflower. Marinated with indian spices, shallow fry and sprinkle with fried shredded curry leaves. So, thanks so much for sharing again.

      Best Wishes, Verita

      What a great recipe! As a vegan, I love finding creative dishes for my family. I will just replace the butter with olive oil and am set. Thank you so much. The peanut powder is a great tip also.
