|Purple Cauliflower Pulao|
This was one of the tastiest and fastest pulaos I’ve made! As you all know it takes just a few minutes to cut a cauliflower! This dish not only looks fancy and dresses up a dinner when you have company, but is exotic in its wonderful flavor! A quick dinner hosting idea -with all the right ingredients and spices, you got yourself (or in this case, I got myself a winner dish Purple cauliflowers are not easily available and are quite expensive when they are – One flower does not go a long way if you are to make a dry sabji of it or a side dish -I have earlier blogged this as a side for a Pasta dish, but as a rice, it satisfies immensely, lending its wonderful flavor to the rice and nicely infusin the wonderful aromas of the Basmati unto itself!
Here is the recipe
2 cups Basmati rice
1/2-1tsp Suvaiyana Pulao Mix
3 tbsp Olive oil
cilantro and roasted cashews to garnish
Wash rice and keep
Heat oil, splutter the cumin, green chilies, ginger powder.
Next, add the garlic, onions and cauliflower florets and toss on high heat like your would a stir fry – for just a minute or 2
Now add the rice in the rice cooker/pressure cooker
Add the cauliflower (it should still be crunchy)
Add required salt and cook like you would for pulao
Amount of water is crucial to get the flowery, separate rice .. so go easy on the water without making it too dry…
Once cooked, transfer into serving platter and garnish with cilantro and cashews if you wish
Enjoy with family and/or friends
