Cauliflower Pepper fry

A lip smacking and spicy cauliflower dish which is a best accompaniment for Rice and Sambhar. This Cauliflower Pepper fry takes very little time to prepare and tastes great when served hot.

Cauliflower is my family's all time favorite Veggie and we love all the spicy dishes that has cauliflower in them. There is always either a cauliflower or a Broccoli in my fridge since they are rich in nutrients (as you can see in the nutritional information) and you can make great side dishes within minutes. I made this recipe to participate in a 2nd blog anniversary give away at The recipe has been adapted from Sujitha's blog. You can find the original recipe here.

I have even tried adding Peanuts to roast and grind masala and it tastes divine. You can modify the recipe however you like but make sure the vegetable is washed properly for safety reasons.
