Cauliflower is every one's fav veggie. These days even kids specially my daughter prefer having her fav chinese type ''Gobi manchurian'' or the sabzi with lots of masala's the most. Its OK up to a level but not always.
This umman is something different from all those masala type. Its the best com bi with dosa and idlies. I offen make this when I find very less quantity of cauliflower in fridge. One thing I like in this is the crunchiness of the veggie because its half cooked and it tastes superb when its mixed up with Indian spices with a tangy touch. Its quick and easy to make within no time. You can also replace cauliflower with ladysfinger (Bindi). Its tastes great too :)
Few Cauliflower Florets.
7 to 8 Dried Red chilli.
Pinch of Hing.
1 tbsp Tamarind Extract.
1 tsp Mustard seeds.
1/2 tsp Jeera.
1/2 tsp Turmeric pd.
Few curry leaves.
Water as per needed.
Salt to taste.
Fry red chillies with a tsp of oil till u get a nice aroma of fried chilli. Grind them with tamarind extract adding water into a fine chilli paste. Meanwhile wash and clean the cauliflower florets. Sprinkle with salt and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the florets and fry under medium heat for about 5 to 6 min. Makesure its not cooked thoroughly. Half cooked florets tastes too good :) Transfer them on a plate once its done.
On a same pan add extra oil. Season with mustard seeds, jeera and curry leaves. Add turmeric pd and chilli paste with adequate amount of water and bring them to boil. Adjust salt according to taste. Sprinkle with hing and atlast add the fried cauliflower florets. Drizzle with a spoon of coconut oil and serve hot with dosa.
