Cauliflower Stir Fry | Cauliflower Poriyal

Cauliflower poriyal, a simply cauliflower stir fry flavored with indian spices.This poriyal is easy to make and it will ready in 15 mins, as today i'm not in mood to cook anything elaborately, i thought of making this as a side dish for capsicum pulao.
Usually i prepared this poriyal along with sambar & rice. But to my surprise, it's so delicious when paired with pulao too. So if you're looking for anything easy to cook yet delicious, give it a try.

  • You can add ginger garlic paste instead of minced garlic.
  • Use coconut oil for better flavor.
  • My sambar powder have very mild hotness, so added red chili powder for extra hotness.
  • For extra flavor, add 1/2 tsp of garam masala.
