Popular Indian Cauliflower Recipes
We see this beautiful Cauliflower vegetable all around us. Essentially a winter veggie, it is now available all round the year with minor price variations. Lush and attractive, just the sight of a cauliflower makes us want to pick one up. What seems to be a common vegetable, however, is one of the most versatile ones. From Indian to continental cuisine, Cauliflower fits beautifully into innumerable dishes. Not only that, take any dish—be it a subzi or a samosa—if you are short of veggies and need volume, you can safely add some cauliflower without worrying about whether it will spoil the taste.
Cauliflower absorbs flavours very well
Since it does not have a strong taste by itself, Cauliflower (like paneer and potatoes) absorbs the flavours of the dish very well. Whether you have it simple, boiled and seasoned with salt and pepper, or whether you add to a spicy subzi, it tastes equally good. You will be surprised to learn that the greens also taste equally good. Rather than throw it away, you can use the cauliflower greens to make amazingly tasty and healthy dishes like the Cauliflower greens and Besan Muthia or Moong Dal and Cauliflower Greens Appe.
Thoroughly clean your Cauliflower
One thing you need to be careful about when using Cauliflower, is that it should be cleaned thoroughly. As a side-effect of being nutritious and tasty, it also plays host to lots of tiny worms! So, make sure you wash the florets thoroughly, preferably in hot salted water, before using in any recipe. You must pay equal attention to washing the greens too. Once that’s done, you can indulge in a range of recipes such as Soups, Snacks and Starters , Parathas and subzis using cauliflower. This mailer gives you a sample of such recipes.
