For Tempering/Seasoning:


  • Thoroughly wash cauliflower, remove the stem and leaves and chop very finely. Keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds along with chana and urad dals and sauté until they turn golden brown in color.
  • Add broken red chilies and fry for some time. Then add curry leaves and chopped cauliflower along with turmeric and mix well.
  • Cover and leave the pan for some time on low flame until cauliflower gets cooked and loses the raw smell. Keep stirring now and then. Sprinkle some water if needed.
  • When the raw smell from cauliflower goes away, add coconut powder, chili powder (if using) and salt and mix well.
  • Leave the pan for some more time again. Be sure to keep the flame on low as this curry tends to get burnt easily.
  • When it4s done, switch off the flame and transfer the curry into a serving bowl and enjoy with rice.
