Cleaning Tip

Learnt this trick from a friend and have been using it ever since. Use a spatula to clean up food from blenders, transferring foods from containers, etc. it cleans up very neatly without using hands in food. It cleans up even more cleanly than we do it with hands.. And super easy too!

Simple Cauliflower Stir Fry

I got this idea of cooking cauliflower sans onion or tomato from a friend. This is such a simple, quick fix recipe!


Ingredients:
Cauliflower - 2 cups (cut into florets and washed)
Sambar powder - 1/2 tbsp (adjust to taste)
Garlic - minced 3 pods
Salt

To Temper:
Mustard seeds
Urad dal
Freshly ground cumin, fennel seeds and pepper


Procedure:

  • Heat oil in a pan and splutter items to temper
  • Add the garlic and saute
  • Add the cauliflower florets and saute
  •  Add salt and sambar powder and saute well
Note:
  1.  I did not boil or microwave the cauliflower
  2. You can use red chilli powder instead of sambar powder
