Cauliflower Rice/Gobi Rice

Cauliflower Rice is a delicious, tasty and nutrition’s one pot meal which has a rich flavor.  This is a different kind of regular rice recipes. Cauliflower has lot of victims and good for health but I and my hubby neglect this veggie as we are not a big fan of cauliflower so to make it tasty I deep fried cauliflower pieces by mixing it with corn flour and rice flour.




This rice has a true flavor of cauliflower in each bite, little spicy due to pepper, masala and nice crunchiness with these cauliflower fritters. I added few drops of lemon juice which made this rice more delicious. I loved its taste and also the gorgeous texture of rice.

  9. I mostly just parboiled or sauteed carrots, peas, corn, etc etc and added cooked rice to make it a stir-fried rice.
    I never thought of frying vegetables and then adding to rice. I like this idea.

    And hey, thanks for dropping by my blog, leaving the comment, and inviting me to your Chocolate Fest event, I've linked some posts :)
