Crunchy Cauliflower Roast.

Back home Cauliflower used to be one of my favorite veggies during my schooldays.When they are in season around March -May, we used to have this vegetable every other day, either as a simple fry for sambhar or as kurma. Sometime we used to have cauliflower bhaji's during those sudden mango showers in the moth of May.But in US whenever I try any recipe with cauliflower in it the dish would taste absolutely bland.

Few days back, when I was making cauliflower fry, I realised that I ran out of tomatoes.First thought of making it without tomatoes, but then decided to add some tomato paste. Finally it ended up in a roasted cauliflower with a delicate taste.I was surprised to see that couple of tablespoons of tomato paste could make such a big difference.But remember to sprinkle just enough water for the florets to cook, more water will make the vegetable soggy

Since Cauliflower is one of the fiber vegetables Iam sending this to Eat healthy - Fibre rich foods event hosted by Sangeeth

Here is the recipe

1 medium sizedd cauliflower cut into florets
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 tsp ginger garlic paste.
1 tsp chilli pwd
2 tablespoons tomato paste
a tsp of lemon/lime juice
salt to taste

Wash the florets thoroughly with water.
Heat the oil in a non stick pan ,add chopped onions when hot.Fry the onion till translucent.
Add ginger garlic paste and fry well.
Now add the florets stir to combine with the onions.
Add the chilli powder , salt and tomato paste.
Stir well to coat , sprinle some water and cover with a lid for 3 mins.
Remove the lid, reduce the flame and and allow it to cook till roasted for approximatly 10 mins.Switch off the stove add the lemon juice and mix well.Garnish with chopped coraider leaves or spring onions.
