    Hi Anita,
    I just loved this recipe the moment I read it and so I tried it out last night. It is such a simple recipe and yet so tasty. I dint have tomato puree and so used fresh tomatoes and some ketchup. This is surely going to get into my frequent list for cauliflower.

    Happy to hear that u all loved it,Priya..

  17. Jayshree said

    A simple dish to try.. Thnx for sharing

    Thanks a lot Jayshree

  18. […] Method: Cook the rice separately in a pan such that the grains doesn’t stick to each other. Add pinch of salt and 1 spoon of oil while cooking the rice. Allow it to cool and keep it aside.Now, take a non stick pan and heat the olive oil. Add the finely minced garlic and fry it. It adds more flavor to the rice. Add red chilly flakes and fry it. Add the frozen veggies and saute it . Add the spring onions and fry it. Now add pepper, salt and Ajinomoto. Add soy sauce and stir it well. Now add the cooked rice and mix it well. Scramble the egg separately and add to the rice. After seeing Rashmi’s(Websamayal) fried rice i too tried the side dish of Annita’s-(My Treasure My Pleasure ’s) Gobi recipe. It came out good. […]

    Annita, I tried this recipe y/day for dinner. It was simple, easy to make and it tasted good(next time, I’ll probably add some crushed garlic too to it as I love garlic flavor). anyways, thanks for sharing this wonderful simple recipe.

    Even I love garlic flavour.Its a nice idea to add garlic in it.I’ll also add it next time.Thanks Rg

    Dear Anita,

    I kept wondering how to make good curry out of cauliflower. Thanks for your receipe. I have added extra tomato puree to make it little more gravy so that it can be used for both rice and chapathi.

    also need to mention – of all the kerala cuisine blogs ive come across, yours is by far the best and easiest recipes. I really have to thank you because your recipes have made me change from a person who knew absolutely no cooking (and had no interest for it either )to someone who loves to explore new recipes today! in fact, any kerala item i make at home today is picked from your recipes.

    Thank you very much…Nice to know that i’m inspiring others to cook..Do visit my blog and write to me when time permits..

    Once we boil bdthe cauliflower it didnt taste good.
    It lost the taste and the didnt taste nice.
    Is there not another way?

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover
    a person that actually knows what they are discussing on the internet.
    You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people should read this and understand this side
    of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  32. What i do not understood is in truth how you are not actually much more neatly-preferred than you might be now.

    You’re so intelligent. You already know thus considerably in relation to this subject,
    made me in my view imagine it from a lot of various angles.
    Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested unless it’s one thing to accomplish
    with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs outstanding. At all times
    deal with it up!
