Cauliflower is a versatile cruciferous veggie that is very rich in fibre, excellent source of vitamins and minerals.This veggie is also a great source of anti oxidants, which protect your cells from free radicals and inflammation. Cauliflower is a great choice veggie for all starter recipes for vegetarians. 

Gobi stuffed Paratha, hot chilli gobi, cauliflower pepper fry, cauliflower(gobi) masala are few recipes that I posted here so far. However, today's post is a healthy and delicious Kerala style stir-fry recipe with cauliflower. This recipe is very simple and tasty that can be served with steamed rice. Give this a try and enjoy !!

Preparation time ~ 10 minutes
Cooking time ~ 10 minutes
Serves ~ 4-5
Author ~ Julie
cauliflower  1/2 of a big flower or 2 cups grated
salt to taste
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
green chilli 2-3 sliced
curry leaves
mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
coconut oil 1 tbsp

to crush 
grated coconut 1/3 cup
shallots / kunjulli 5-6
garlic 4-5 cloves
cumin seeds/ jeerakam 1/2 tsp
fennel seeds/ perinjeerakam 1/2 tsp


  • Crush the coconut with other ingredients. Then, blanch the cauliflower florets in warm water and salt for 5 minutes. Rinse under running water and drain water, grate using a grater. Transfer to a plate.
  • Heat oil in a kadai , splutter mustard seeds. Add green chilli and curry leaves. 
  • Then, slide grated cauliflower. Add turmeric, pepper and salt.Cook for 4-5minutes on low flame. Sprinkle some water. 
  • Finally, add crushed coconut mix.Add a tbsp of water in blender and mix. Toss and cook covered for 2-3 minutes, or till everything looks combined and free of moisture. Adjust salt if needed. 
  • Serve with steamed rice.

* You can chop the floret small instead of grating, but I feel grating is quicker. 
* Cauliflower leaves out moisture when it starts to cook, so you may or may not need to add water when cooking.
